Depeche Mode gets behind "Delta Machine"
Before taking off on a European outing, Depeche Mode will unveil a long-awaited new album titled "Delta Machine," which will be followed by a still-undetermined North American run.

Produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by Flood, the forthcoming collection follows 2009's "Sounds of the Universe," which peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and topped several international album charts.
"Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern," singer/guitarist Martin Gore said in a press release. "I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It's just got something magical about it."
Depeche Mode with begin the European excursion with a May 7 performance in Tel Aviv, Israel, and continue on for nearly three months. The 34-city trek currently concludes July 29 in Minsk, Russia, and an undisclosed North American tour will follow, according to a press release.
