     Depeche Mode to release new album in March

    Before embarking on a lengthy world tour, Depeche Mode will release their 13th studio album. Though additional details are forthcoming, today the band confirmed a March 2013 release via Columbia Records.

    Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore said of the album, “I am very happy with how the album turned out. 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 added, “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.”

    Additional album details will be revealed in the coming weeks, as will dates for the band’s North American tour. In the meantime, you can find an in-studio collage featuring new music and the band’s current tour schedule below.
