Soulsavers and Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan Perform Intimate Set in Los Angeles - Premiere
Production duo and New Wave frontman rock out at Capitol Records building

Earlier this year, the English production duo Soulsavers teamed up with Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan, who provided lyrics and vocals for the group's fourth studio album, The Light the Dead See. Now you can watch this exclusive video of Soulsavers and Gahan performing an intimate, 30-minute concert at the famed Capitol Records building in Los Angeles this summer. It includes renditions of the slow-burning "Presence of God," the eerie "Bitterman" (which builds to a soulful catharsis) and the heavy alt-rock album closer, "Tonight."

"Playing at Capitol that Saturday night was a special show," Rich Machin of Soulsavers tells Rolling Stone. "The room has a presence and you can't help but think of all the amazing artists who've been in there before you: Sinatra, Ray Charles, the Beach Boys. . . We literally had one evening and the following afternoon to rehearse the whole show, so it was totally seat-of-your-pants stuff! We played around with the arrangements and improvised a little."
