The new album of the gloomy synth-rockers, “Sounds of the Universe” that came out earlier in the year 2009, does not at all sound like an album of 2009. The focus of the album remains on those synth symphonies of Martin Gore, the lyrics are as usual utterly romantic, which David Gahan delivers in a dramatic way.
Depeche Mode, is in fact currently on a tour to promote this new album and their concerts are all booked through the year 2010. The iconic synth-rockers are scheduled to perform in this year’s Lollapalooze that is going to be held in Chicago latter this year.
