Formed in 1980 by Dave Gahan on vocals, Andy Fletcher on bass guitar, and Martin Gore and Vince Clarke on songwriting, guitar and keys, Depeche Mode’s debut, “Speak and Spell,” was released to hugely positive critical reception, hitting number 10 on the UK Albums Chart. Since Vince Clarke departed the band and Martin Gore took over songwriting duties, establishing the band’s distinctly dark and gothic sound, they saw a pattern that has only been repeated with each subsequent release, with each album growing their audience and receiving increasingly rave reviews from critics. “Delta Machine,” the band’s most recent release in 2013, was praised by Entertainment Weekly as “"the strongest album the group has put out this century”!!
It’s no wonder that everyone is so excited to see what the legendary group are about to deliver next. Make sure you catch the experience live!!
