Depeche Mode Reveal New Album ‘Momento Mori’ and World Tour

Depeche Mode has returned to unveil a new album, “Memento Mori,” and accompanying tours of North America and Europe, all to kick off next year. The forthcoming album will be the band’s 15th studio effort and their first release since the death in May of founding member and keyboardist Andy “Fletch” Fletcher.

“We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time,” said Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore. “After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue as we’re sure this is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning.”

Dave Gahan added, “Fletch would have loved this album. We’re really looking forward to sharing it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present it to you live at the shows next year.”

“Momento Mori” will be Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album and the follow-up to 2017’s “Spirit.” While there is no official release date for the set just yet, the band’s reps confirm it will be arriving next spring, via Columbia Records.

The “Momento Mori Tour” is the band’s first in over five years, with their most recent trek being the 2017-2018 “Global Spirit Tour.” The Live Nation-presented tour will begin with a special, limited series of North American arena dates starting in late March, and will culminate in New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 14. After that, the band will head out to Europe for their summer stadium tour.

North American shows kick off in Sacramento, California, in March 2023, and take in a handful of cities in the United States and Canada, culminating in a Madison Square Garden concert on April 14. A huge arena tour of Europe follows. Check out the dates below.

European stadium stops include the Stade de France in Paris, Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, Milan’s San Siro Stadium, and London’s Twickenham Stadium.
