Everyone’s favorite dark synthpop darlings Depeche Mode are back on March 26, 2013 with a new album titled Delta Machine. The first single “Heaven” drops on February 1. Will it be an ode to Richey Edwards who will have been missing for 18 years come February 1? I highly doubt it but a girl can dream.
Depeche Mode kicks off their world tour on May 7 in Tel Aviv, Israel. You can get more info on their official website.
Disclaimer: Depeche Mode is not Britpop but they’re one of those bands that us Britpoppers have always seemed to flock to. Most of us love them and let’s be real, I do a damn fine version of “It’s No Good” at Union Jack Off Karaoke here in San Francisco.
