“Leave in Silence” is the sixth single by the English electronic band Depeche Mode, released on 16 August 1982. Recorded at Blackwing Studios, the single became the band’s fifth UK Top 20 hit, peaking at #18. It was the first Depeche Mode single in the UK to use the “Bong” catalogue number system, which they used until “Heaven” in 2013. Three versions of the track were released on the 7″ and 12″ singles, while a fourth cut (running at 4:51 mins) was released on the band’s 1982 album A Broken Frame. The music video for “Leave in Silence” was directed by Julien Temple, and features the band breaking things on a conveyor belt and talking to each other while wearing face paint. The band disliked the video and did not include it on the Some Great Videos VHS compilation album.
