Depeche Mode is releasing a new album in March 2013 on Columbia Records. The album, which has not yet been named, is the band's 13th studio album. The album contains new tracks written by Martin Gor and Dave Gahan.
Martin Gore said in a release, "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."
David Gahan says, "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."
Depeche Mode will also kick off a new European tour on May 7 , 2013. You can find the tour dates on the band's official website, depechemode.com
. A full North American tour will follow the European tour. We are looking forward to the new album.
