Depeche Mode revealed 2013 tour schedule and new album

After more than three decades of recording, it's sensible to presume that any band will run into a dry spell of sorts, resulting in either awful material or the end of the group. For the past decade, Depeche Mode (DM) have wanted to keep away from that curse by dropping three diverse studio albums: Exciter in 2001, Playing the Angel in 2005 and Sounds of the Universe (2009), each of these have been solid records in their own right.

DM recently ended their long career with Sire, Mute Records, EMI and WMG, and singed a new contract with Columbia Records. The band revealed that they are currently working on a new album set for release in March 2013. Following the record’s release, DM will embark on a world tour in support of their new album " Delta Machine"
