Depeche Mode announces 2013 World Tour and New LP

Depeche Mode, one of the most influential bands of all-time, have announced their plans to return in 2013 to with their 13th studio album and a supporting trot around the globe, their first since 2009-10′s “Tour of the Universe”, a run that notably brought them to the main stage in Grant Park at Lollapalooza 2009.

The new album will contain 20 songs described as a cross between “Violator [1990] and Songs of Faith and Devotion [1993].” You can hear a demo of an unnamed tracked played during the news conference.

The album will come out in front of the the tour’s kickoff date in Tel Aviv on May 7. Plans for a North American run are in the works following the summer Euro Tour and although it appears that Bonnaroo is an impossibility, a return to Lolla in 2013 and/or Austin City Limits is a definite possibility given the timing of the run through North America. Check out the the full itinerary below the video sample.
