Depeche Mode Announce Album ‘Spirit’ and Tour Dates

Depeche Mode edified the electronic era as we know it as one of the most epic and influential bands ever. Freshly rinsed, synthesized sound waves made in the 80s, caused melodic rifts with electric instruments remnant in the stagnant sea of saturation that the electronic arena of music has become.

The band’s first album in four years has a title and tentative release. Spirit is due out sometime around spring 2017. Depeche Mode singer David Gahan told Rolling Stone:

“We’re working on the album with a new team: it’s produced by James Ford [of Simian Mobile Disco], and he’s helped us to make what we feel is a very incredible sounding record. He was able to really guide us.”

The 2017 album release will be followed by the European Global Spirit Tour spanning 32 cities. Continuing with tradition, proceeds from the tour will benefit charity:water. Guitarist Martin Gore said:

“They’re an amazing organization whose goal is to bring clean, safe drinking water to everybody on the planet. On the last tour, with our fans’ help, we were able to raise over $1.4 million for charity:water. Those funds specifically brought clean water to people in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Rwanda.”

“Videos have always played an essential part in how we wanted to present Depeche Mode’s music to the world. It’s been amazing to go back and relive all the experiences and memories these videos evoke after all these years.
