Depeche Mode is returning to the stage after a five-year hiatus. The British announced on social networks that they are preparing a new album and, of course, will time the tour to coincide with it.

The program is called Memento Mori (“Remember Death”) and will focus on the coronavirus restrictions that entered our lives a couple of years ago.

— We started work on this project at the beginning of the pandemic [коронавируса]and on topics [альбома] we were directly inspired by this time,” explained Martin Gore. – After the death of Fletch (the band’s keyboardist Andy Fletcher – Auth.), we decided to continue, because we are sure that this is exactly what he would like, and it really gave the project additional meaning.

Bandleader Dave Gahan added that Fletcher would certainly like the new album.

– We look forward to sharing it soon. [новым музыкальным материалов] with you and we can’t wait to bring it to you live next year,” the vocalist said.

The musicians will start with a tour of the US and Canada, and then move on to Europe. Performances will take place in almost all European capitals. Of course, the British could not go against the world agenda (as Roger Waters did to his credit, so Moscow is not among the cities that will see the live performance of legends. The nearest capitals to our country are Helsinki and Tallinn, which no longer have direct flights. Fans of the group will have to fly with two or three transfers (or with one – through Istanbul, for example – for 50 thousand rubles).

Depeche Mode’s previous tour took place in 2017-2018 and spanned 130 shows across Europe and North America, reaching over 3 million listeners. Tickets for the band’s concerts will go on sale in October this year.
