Depeche Mode have announced a new album, Memento Mori, as well as some 2023 tour dates that include shows in North America and Europe. It will be the first Depeche Mode album to be released since the death of the band’s Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher, who passed away in May at age 60. Fletcher did work on the album before his death. Memento Mori is due out next spring (an exact release date is TBA) on Columbia. No new music has been shared from the album as of yet, and the album’s tracklist and cover art are still forthcoming. Below are the tour dates.

Memento Mori is the band’s 15th studio album and the follow-up to 2017’s Spirit. The Memento Mori tour will be the band’s first tour in five years and the band’s 19th tour overall. With Fletcher’s passing, that makes the official lineup for Depeche Mode as Dave Gahan and Martin Gore.

Gore had this to say about the album in a press release: “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. 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.”

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.”

The album and tour were announced today via an event in Berlin.
