The British group get ready to release new material later this year...

DEPECHE GET INTO WORKING MODE
Depeche Mode intend to begin recording their new album in June with a release slated for the end of the year, according to their official website www.depechemode.com. A tour is also mooted.

Songwriter Martin Gore is reported to have said told fans at the Depeche Mode annual conference in Basildon on April 15: "I'm in the studio at the moment, working on some new stuff with Gareth [Jones], and one of our friends, Paul [Freeguard]."

Singer Dave Gahan added: "Hopefully, by the end of this year, we'll have finished a new record, and we're gonna start recording in June. Martin's written some great songs already."

A spokesperson for Depeche Mode confirmed that the band were working through new ideas. "At present they're writing the new album," she said, "But I really couldn't say when they'll release the final thing."

It would be the first new Depeche Mode material since 'Ultra' in 1997.
