Depeche Mode announce new album & tour in 2017

Recommended Posts

Quote

The legends Depeche Mode are back with a brand new LP, supposedly duo out in Spring 2017. 

Recorded in Santa Barbera and New York, produced by James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco and featuring synth programming by techno producer Matrixxman, “Spirit” has just been announced at their Milan press conference. The samples they played sound highly modern, skirting the line between massive bass, blues-leaning melancholy and the synthetic pop they helped pioneer.

It will almost assuredly be a massive deal—in case you didn’t realize, Depeche fans are rabid.

The group will also be embarking on a 2017 tour titled Global Spirit. Full dates to come.

So excited for this! Hope it's better than "Delta Machine".

Unlike Bonzo Vox

Hope this will be the tour where I finally get to see them live. Looking forward to the new album, they are very consistent with their album and tour cycles.

If I get to see them this round, it will be my 10th time seeing them live. 

And, I've met the boys twice.

Why do I always detect a certain hostility on here whenever one reads London and stadium together?  :lol:

 

Unless there is some dodgy curfew or obnoxious "residents acustic compliance" issue a concert in a stadium is to die for as far as I am concerned

I mean, we're not talking about going to a stadium to see Janet powerpoint mime to her 1990 tapes here, are we?

If the audio works fine and there are no decibel restrictions due to residents complaints I don't really see the issue

Dave Gahan is one of those few acts who is truly made for a stadium setting, with music to boot

Innit?

So full of himself and annoying

Dave is a true rebel heart instead

Wholly unscripted and infinitely more eloquent

And he's sexy on stage (like Madonna)

Unlike Bozo (another variation for Bonzo) Vox

Dave is simply a really nice guy.  I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting him twice.  Both times, we was interested in what I had to say, he chatted and was engaging in the conversations we had.  Martin too.  Martin and I talked about real estate for about an hour.  LOL.  

They were truly charming and nice, and interesting. 

Lovely men.

I'm actually looking forward to new album and another amazing tour!

DP are very strong live, but they continue to play the same songs from their very rich back catalogue. Know most attendees go to shows to hear the obvious hits, but DP needs to totally mix up their now predictable set lists.

The Delta Machine Tour setlist was a great combination of old hits and new tracks. The show totally blew my mind, it was fantastic. 

I got front of stage tickets for the new show, I'll be seeing them in Frankfurt...can't wait!

 

P.S.: I love the fact that their biggest fanbase (by far!) is in Germany. Finally the Germans show some taste when it comes to music.

You're lucky as f**k to see them first row!

From what I read, and watched online, Spain Italy, Germany, and even  a couple of US cities have very enthusiastic crowds.

Acutually srill listen to all their albums rexcept for their second and construction time again.

Simgles from Delta Machine contain several official remixes, which are quite good and worth a listen

I saw them during the Tour of the Universe, great show!

I'm really hoping the sound is a bit different for the new album, Ben Hillier kept them sounding pretty much the same for the past 3 albums, , not that I don't enjoy them, it's just one can't help wonder the potential of their songs when listening the Alan Wilder remix of In Chains, its magic.

First single has just been released called "Where's The Revolution":

 

I really like this! This is better than both "Heaven" & "Wrong" combined so this bodes well for the album!

Not too crazy about it as of now. Sometimes new music needs to grow on you.

Anyway, pretty certain new album will be fantastic.

OMG! I'm dying.! Depeche Mode, Madonna and A-ha are my favorite music acts.

I love Where's the Revolution. The lyrics are so on point and at the same time timeless as they could have been written 30 years ago and still fit. Society has not changed as much as we thought and we're facing the sad truth at the moment. I love the "train is coming" breakdown and the crescendo of the song.

Indeed it's a grower, at first listen I thought it was just OK but now in my 12th listen I'm really proud of them. Best lead single since Precious.

I think it's good, but hoping there are better songs on the album.

I like the production in the verses, was expecting less judging by the reaction to it.

They are so legendary!! 💋

I remember reading an article about them in some old Face Mag. ( the one with first Madonna cover) where DM were ridiculed like some random school band project. Some whimsy little pop boys... and now they are still here, just like Madonna.

I find their recent work pretty boring. Hopefully this new album will be good.
