Depeche Mode set for Rock Werchter 2013

Depeche Mode is undoubtedly the most popular electronic band ever …and the first to be embraced by rock fans. But they have worked hard for it. Their first appearance at Werchter in 1985 did not pass unnoticed. Twenty years later (2006) and the band was by far the best at Werchter. ‘Violator’ (1990) was the pivotal moment. An essential album produced by Flood (U2, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey) and featuring artwork and video clips by the Dutch photographer/filmmaker Anton Corbijn. The scope of their musical fan base is uncommonly wide: from Daan through Pet Shop Boys to The Killers and Linkin Park to Rammstein. Depeche Mode, in the shape of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, have now sold more than 100 million albums. The trio is among the most successful live acts of all time. Last year, Depeche Mode worked on their 13th album, the successor to the wicked ‘Sounds of the Universe’ (2009), which is due for release in the spring. They are planning 34 European concerts next summer. Welcome back to Werchter!
