The reason for the elimination of the popular publication was the official website Depeche Mode. According to the group members, the website more informative than the magazine.
"In fact, we are very sorry that the story of such a wonderful publication has come to its end. Over the past few years, Bong Magazine has been almost the only source of reliable and official information. All readers who subscribe to the following Bong numbers will certainly be paid compensation."
"We want to thank all the people who have been involved with this magazine for many years and once again apologize for such unpleasant news."
