This October, Depeche Mode release their first album since 2001's two million-selling Exciter. "I really felt, before we started this album, that there was unfinished business," says Dave Gahan of their 11th studio album, Playing The Angel. And so it is that the world's foremost subversive electronic pop group have reconvened to, as the singer puts it, "make the best record we can." They just can't shake the disease.

Playing The Angel is an astonishingly fresh, exuberant release from the band who have, over 25 years, sold upwards of 50 million records worldwide and amassed a staggering 38 hit singles in the UK and no fewer than 13 Top 10 albums. And yet they sound like a new group, not one halfway through their third decade together. "Precious", the first single, is quintessential Mode, all cyber pulse and glorious chorus. "The Sinner In Me" perfectly balances the organic and synthetic, and climaxes, as do most of the tracks, with staccato blasts of noise and FX. On "Suffer Well" Dave's voice is more powerful than ever. "Macrovision", sung by Martin Gore, is hi-tech pop with an enormous hook. "John The Revelator" is one of many potential hit singles. "I Want It All" is one of the slower tracks with its minor-key menace, like trip hop from hell. "A Pain That I'm Used To" kicks off what would have been Side 2 in fine, furious style with its savage bursts of guitar.

The title for the album was taken, according to Fletch, from the lyric of a track called "The Darkest Star". The LP was recorded in Santa Barbara, New York and London. Recording began in January 2005 in California, with producer Ben Hillier at the helm providing a sense of challenge. "You have to work hard at reinventing yourself," admits Dave, "so you have to choose new people who push you." Playing The Angel is faster-paced than the last two Mode albums, heightening the sense of urgency and vibrancy. Ben's fondness for analogue synths over digital ones helped shape the sound.

It is also the first Depeche album to feature Dave Gahan credits - three of the tracks ("I Want It All", "Suffer Well" and "Nothing's Impossible") were written by the singer, who was encouraged by the reaction to his debut solo album Paper Monsters (2003). Martin was responsible for the remaining nine tracks. As usual, he was unflinching in his depiction of the dark side of the human condition. In fact, he jokes, the back cover of the LP sleeve may well feature the subtitle: Pain And Suffering In Various Tempos. "Dave said I've made a 25-year career out of one subject. I disagree: it's two!"

When asked what the broad, overarching themes of this record are, Martin smiles: "Anything that appeals to really dysfunctional people." It would be wrong, however, to dismiss Depeche Mode as harvesters of sorrow. "I never see our music as over-dark. There's always an element of hope. And I hope that comes over in the music."

A sense of optimism, of renewed vigour, of pleasure at what they've achieved, can be discerned from Playing The Angel. It's also obvious from the sheer delight Dave, Martin and Andy feel at being back with Depeche Mode, on the eve of the release of a brilliant album and a mammoth, sell-out world tour that confirms the enormity of their global audience.

Dave counts his blessings that he's still actually here to do this. "That we've achieved so much in 25 years, and survived so much... Of all the bands, this is the one I'd have put money on not still being around!" he laughs. "I see ourselves alongside U2 and R.E.M. more than any of the bands we came up with, although really we don't fit in and we never have, and I've come to embrace that - there's no one like Depeche Mode. I might have lost some of my drive in the mid-'90s, but now I've got it back. It's better being in Depeche Mode now than it has been for 15 years."

As we reported earlier the forthcoming Depeche Mode album, 'Playing The Angel', is being released on October 17th in Europe, and today, DM.com revealed that the album will be out October 18th in North America and October 13th (!) in Japan. The album was recorded in Santa Barbara (Sound Design), New York (Stratosphere) and London with producer Ben Hillier at the helm, and mixed by Steve Fitzmaurice.

The album will be preceded, as expected, by the single 'Precious' on October 3rd in Europe and 4th in the US.

The standard edition of the album will include the songs 'A Pain That I'm Used To', 'John The Revelator', 'Suffer Well', 'The Sinner In Me', 'Precious', 'Macrovision', 'I Want It All', 'Nothing's Impossible', 'Introspectre', 'Damaged People', 'Lillian' and 'The Darkest Star'.

The bulk of the songs were written by Martin Gore, the only exceptions being 'I Want It All', 'Suffer Well' and 'Nothing's Impossible', all penned by Dave. Martin provides the lead on two tracks - 'Macrovision' (or 'Macro') and 'Damaged People'.

For an idea of what to expect from the album, please read 'Playing The Angel' track by track. For a brief run down of the tracks not covered in that review, read on...

'Nothing's Impossible' is a mid-tempo song, where Dave's voice is filtered through a vocoder of sorts. It's described as a dark song, and a highlight of the album. 'Introspectre' is the album's only instrumental, and weighing in at just shy of a minute and a half, it's a simple but effective little creature.

'Damaged People' is described strong mix of beautiful vocals, against a backdrop of weird arrangements and harmonies. Sound familiar? Similar things were said about 2001's 'Comatose'... 'Lillian' is an uptempo track, not much else has been said about it, and finally there's 'The Darkest Star', a beautiful song that builts up to become another absolute highlight of this record. The title of the album is also pulled from this song.

Φήμες λένε οτι υπάρχει πιθανότητα να έρθουν Ελλάδα το Μάρτιο. Ξέρει κανείς τίποτα η μούφες είναι οι φήμες??
Δεν θέλω να σε απογοητεύσω αλλά όλα αυτά σχετικά με τις φήμες φούντωσαν από λάθος χειρισμό στην ροή των πληροφοριών και λάθος χρονική στιγμή δυστυχώς από το ιδρυτικό μέλος του Hysterika. Επίσημα, όπως μ'αρέσει πάντα να μιλάω δεν υπάρχει κάποια date για Ελλάδα, απλά αυτό που ελπίζουμε είναι ότι ενδιάμεσα σε κάποιες άλλες συναυλίες, με κενό 3-4 ημερών ίσως έρχθουν κατά δω.

Police have arrested a man in Poland who allegedly made a Depeche Mode single and video available to download from the internet ahead of its release. The single, Precious, is not due to be released until October but was found on a Polish website.

The band's record label, working with industry groups, managed to trace the origin of the files. Police said the video was accessed from a supposedly secure copy and illegally made public. An address in Kielce, Poland, was raided by police who removed two computers and a number of CDs said to contain copied music. The International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI) worked with Polish industry group ZPAV and Depeche Mode's label Mute to have the files removed.

The arrest is part of a worldwide crackdown on music put on the internet for people to illegally download. The industry says the practice harms not just the profits of the big recording artists, but those that make their living from music such as sound engineers and independent record shops. Jeremy Banks, head of IFPI's Internet Anti-Piracy Unit said: "This action shows just how seriously the record companies view pre-release piracy. Pre-releases can be illegally posted, downloaded and distributed worldwide within hours. So it is crucial for the recording industry's cycle of reinvestment to prevent initial sales being lost to internet piracy."
