Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan Confirms New Album & Tour In 2013

Get ready for a lot of new Depeche Mode in 2013. Dave Gahan spoke with Spinner about the group’s future plans once he and Martin Gore are done with their side projects.

Dave Gahan reveals the legendary synth-pop band already has demoed about 20 new songs for its as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2009′s Sounds of the Universe — and already is making plans to take the new songs on the road next year.

In a short interview with Spin, Gahan reports that DM has reconvened with Ben Hillier, who produced Sounds of the Universe and 2005′s Playing the Angel, and also has enlisted the help of producer Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray, The Knife).

“We’ve probably got 20 songs demoed. Some of the songs are in really good shape, some need some work, but we’re definitely on track.

“We have a deadline of the end of November, and there’s no reason we why we won’t meet that at the rate we’re going”

Gahan also says that “There are already plans in place to be touring next year.”.

As for the addition of Berg to the DM studio team, Gahan said, “He’s a great musician and has a lot of fantastic ideas. He’s not afraid to stand up and say, ‘I got an idea.’ I like that. It’s quite intimidating working with a band like ours because you have certain expectations of how it is. A lot are true and some aren’t. Martin and I are open to other people’s ideas.”

Last week, Depeche Mode who was supposed to begin work on its 13th studio album, which Martin L. Gore has said will be out “no later than early 2013.” released the first video evidence that the group is at work on its next LP by releasing a 43-second time-lapse video of the band’s synths and other gear being set up in a studio.
