Legendary electronic band Depeche Mode are set to release their first album since 2009. While the group did not release the name of the album during their recent press conference, they did say that it would contain around twenty songs and that it will be produced by Ben Hilier (know for producing acts such as Blur, Doves, The Horrors, and previous Depeche Mode albums). An “in-studio collage” was also released at the same time on YouTube and features a demo of an unknown song that is being considered for Depeche Mode’s next studio album.
Along with the announcement of a new album, Depeche Mode revealed a number of international tour dates that are set to take place next year. Starting in May in Tel Aviv, Israel, the tour is set to take the band around most of Europe for a good two months, taking them to various festivals including Rock Werchter and Optimus Alive. North American tour dates were stated to take place once their international tour is complete.
Depeche Mode are considered to be one of the most popular bands of all time with record sales topping one hundred million since their 1981 debut album, Speak and Spell. Judging by the massive arenas they played on their very extensive 2009 tour titled “Tour of The Universe”, you can expect to see Depeche Mode headlining a large venue near you next year.
