Depeche Mode Prepare For New Era With Global Spirit Tour 2017

Depehce Mode

One of my longtime favorite bands - since was 4 years old - Depeche Mode are back to rock the year of 2017 with their new album "Spirit"; the follow up to 2013's "Delta Machine".

The band held a press conference in Milan, Italy where they played sound bits of new material impressing all those who were in attendance. "The samples they played sound highly modern, skirting the line between massive bass, blues-leaning melancholy and the synthetic pop they helped pioneer."

Well then! It's no wonder they sound like that since they've enlisted James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco who served as producer, while Matrixxman, a well known name in the techno music genre, handled synthesizer programming.

Additionally, the electronic trio are set to embark on a tour for the spring and most of the summer spanning 32 shows and 21 stadiums across Europe before heading to the states. The tour starts May 5th in Stockholm, Sweden at the Friends Arena and concludes July 23rd in Cluj-Napoca, Romania at the Cluj Arena. Stay tuned to the band's official website and social media outlets for more information.
