New Depeche Mode Coming in March
The band, Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy "Fletch" Fletcher, have yet to reveal any details about the set, but they are enthusiastic with the way it turned out. Gore said in a statement "The music has a similar vibe to Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion and I think the songs on the album are among some of the very best we've done. The album has a very organic and direct feel to it. It's not a blues record, but it definitely has a soulful vibe. During the recording process we really tried to get the elements of performing and the live show into the album more."
Following the release of their new album, the group will embark on a European tour, kicking off in Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park on May 7. They will perform 34 shows in 25 European countries, featuring appearances at the Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium, BBK Festival in Spain and Optimus Alive Festival in Portugal. The band will go on to play at Rome’s renowned Olympic Stadium, the Stade De France in Paris, and Moscow’s Locomotive Stadium before wrapping up the European leg of their tour in Minsk, Belarus on July 29. A full North American tour will follow, with details to be announced shortly.
