OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!!!!
Oh I'd love a tour featuring only songs Alan was a part of...
My first instinct was that maybe Alan is producing. Appears Hillier and Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray producer!!) are doing that. Hm.Depeche Mode have started 3rd recording session for their new album. The new session starts after a two weeks break. Fever Ray producer Christoffer Berg who joined Depeche Mode in the studio alongside producer Ben Hillier tweeted on Saturday: "Back to the pit".
Maybe they're just fucking with everyone for giggles. Or maybe he is actually recording with them.
Word on the block is that it means nothing; the person that runs the Facebook page didn't realize he'd be starting a shitstorm by putting those lyrics together with that face.
It was an amazing performance.
Where's Underworld and Mew? Make it happen GV.
...In exciting news for fans of Depeche Mode, information about the band’s upcoming album has started to trickle out. Back in February, the band promised that their next record would be finished by the end of the year. *There hasn’t been much news since then, until new
During an interview with Clash, Mode frontman Dave Gahan revealed that the band has laid down “close to twenty songs,” at their California studio.
Gahan said that the album is going to be rawer than the band’s previous material: “Just because it’s another electronic record doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have a certain edge to it. That’s what we’re getting with this. That’s what’s exciting with the Depeche record. We’re definitely going down that road, where we’ve got a lot more bluesy influence on it, and we’re trying to retain that more in the recording and not get too over-fussed about details.”
It also looks like the record will arrive some time next year, with Gahan aiming for Spring 2013 date. A tour is in the works as well.
Dudes just wanted some better caviar
PeterToo, the admin on teh Home forum tweeted this a couple of days ago:
Expecting the album/tour announcement. Also recently stated that the last studio sessions are happening in New York right now.
Ok, apparently it's confirmed that the announcement on the 23rd of October will be for a new album/tour, and that presale for (at least part of) the tour will start October 27th.
