Depeche Mode Announce New Album Spirit And World Tour

We last heard from UK synthpop gods Depeche Mode when they released their 2013 album Delta Machine. And next year, they’ll return with a new one. They’ve announced this morning that they’ll release their new album Spirit during the spring of 2017. Beyond that, the only real detail they’ve shared is that they worked on the album with Simian Mobile Disco member and Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford. Ford’s icy, precise sound could make a cool match for Depeche Mode’s electro-brood. They’ve also announced an arena tour that will take them across Europe, with dates in North and South America yet to be announced. Below, check out their European tour dates.
