The announcement of the new album and next year’s tour was made in Berlin on Tuesday at a special event. “Memento Mori” is the 15th  album by the band, now just Dave Gaham and Martin Gore.

Martin Gore told the Ticketmaster website: “We started working on this project at the beginning of the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue because we’re sure it’s what he would have wanted, and it gave the project an extra level of meaning.”

Dave Gahan added: “Fletch would have loved this album. We can’t wait to share it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present it live at next year’s concerts.”

Andy “Fletch” Fletcher, keyboardist was one of the founding members before he died aged 60.

Depeche Mode has  sold over 100 million records worldwide and had 54 songs chart on the UK Singles Chart.
