Dust off your Violator T-shirts and get ready for some Music For The Masses, because synthpop stalwart Depeche Mode has just announced a new European tour and forthcoming album, for those of us unable to travel from Milan to Minsk. (Who are we kidding? We’re based in Chicago.) Anyway, the British trio will set off on a 32-city trek next spring in support of Global Spirit, its 14th studio album. The A.V. Club deemed Depeche Mode’s previous release, Delta Machine, a “potent combination of moody programming, focused songwriting, and subtle velocity,” so we’re cautiously optimistic about the latest effort. Our European Union and globetrotting friends can check out the list of dates below, but don’t worry, Stateside devotees: the band will hit up North and South America some time next year as well.
