Just can't get enough Depeche Mode? New album coming soon

22

February

I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough. Good thing because Depeche Mode is headed back to the studio soon to work on their first album since 2009's Sounds of the Universe.

First, though, we get a new album from Vince Clarke and Martin Gore's VCMG project - SSSS, which comes out March 12. Quietus.com calls it "a brilliant 10n tracks of chest-out techno pop - proper Essex-boy bangers." The website spoke with Gore about both albums last week.

"It's was a nice break for me to be able to go and do something completely different that doesn't involve poring over lyrics and having to think about vocal melodies," Gore said. "I think I went back to actually writing for the band with much more vigour afterwards, because I had taken such a break. It gave me a real creative impetus."

Look for the new Depeche Mode album to be finished by year's end.
