Lots of peripheral action in the Depeche Mode camp: A day after Vince Clarke tweeted he is collaborating with former bandmate Martin Gore on a new song, a cryptic video surfaced that appears to announce Gore will join ex-DM member Alan Wilder at the latter’s Recoil event on Oct. 24 in Santa Ana, Calif.

As Modefan.com reports, the 11-second video, shown above, “suggests the upcoming appearance via a longitude/latitude puzzle. AW+MLG 33.745573 -117.867834 10 24 = Alan Wilder+Martin Lee Gore, Santa Ana, October 24, 2010.” Fan site Home also points out that Depeche Mode “web guy” Daniel Barassi tweeted the video earlier today. Tickets for Recoil’s Santa Ana performance already are on sale via Ticketmaster.

The appearance presumably is a returned favor by Gore after Wilder joined Depeche Mode onstage for the first time in 16 years this past February at a charity concert in London. Wilder and Gore performed the DM classic “Somebody” together (see video here).

The Santa Ana date is part of Wilder’s continually expanding fall Recoil tour, which, at this point, will include 14 performances in the U.S., Canada and Mexico in October and early November — including a Chicago double bill with Gary Numan — seven concerts in five South American nations in November, plus a pair of German concerts in late November.

UPDATE 8/29/10: Per an announcement on Recoil’s website, Gore “will be appearing to DJ at an aftershow DM/Recoil party.” Wilder writes that “Martin has graciously agreed to appear just for this event to spin a collection of his favourite tracks.”
