Depeche Mode To Release New Album On Columbia Records March 2013

Depeche Mode are set to release their 13th studio album in March 2013 on Columbia Records.  

"I am very happy with how the album turned out," comments DM founder Martin Gore.  "The music has a similar vibe to Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion and I think there are a few songs on the album that are among some of the very best we've done."  

The band has announced that the new album will contain brand new tracks written by Gore and Dave Gahan. Gahan reveals, "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." The band gave fans a glimpse into the making of the new album in October when they released the following video clip featuring new music (http://smarturl.it/dmcollage).  Additional album details will be disclosed in the coming weeks. 

Pioneers of the post-punk era, Depeche Mode have gone on to become one of modern music's most influential groups with global sales in excess of 100 million. Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode - Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy 'Fletch' Fletcher - continue to win critical and commercial acclaim around the world both in the studio and on the road.  The band's 12 released studio albums have reached the Top Ten in over 20 countries, including the US and UK. Their last album, 2009's Sounds of The Universe, debuted at the #1 chart spot in 14 countries around the world.

Since their inception, Depeche Mode's live shows continue to be a must-see attraction.  On their 2009-2010 "Tour of the Universe" alone, the band played to nearly 3 million people across 31 countries, becoming the first electronic band to completely sell out a stadium tour.  Following the release of their new album, Depeche Mode 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, Optimus Alive Festival in Portugal and two shows at London's O2 Arena. 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.
