     Depeche Mode announces new album, world tour

    Start stretching those limbs! Depeche Mode will return in 2013 to release their 13th studio album and embark on a globe-spanning tour, their first since 2009-10’s “Tour of the Universe”.

    The English electronic outfit, led by Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, announced the news this morning during a press conference webcast from Paris, France. Produced by Gore and Ben Hillie, the album will contain 20 songs described as a cross between “Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion.” Below, you can hear a demo of an unnamed tracked played during the news conference (via slicing up eyeballs).
