Depeche Mode are back on track after the death of Andy Fletcher. The new CD Memento Mori will be released in March. On July 21st the only Austrian concert will take place in Klagenfurt.
On May 26, Depeche Mode keyboardist died of an aortic dissection. Now his band buddies Dave Gahan and Martin Gore dare to restart. In March the 15th album Memento Mori will be released. On July 21st they will be rocking at the Wörthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt. The biggest Austrian concert of the now 42-year hit career for up to 37,500 fans. Depeche Mode will be playing closer to Vienna on May 28, when the concert in Bratislava will take place. Advance sales for both shows will start on Thursday (October 6).
“Remember that you have to die sounds very morbid,” said Gahan and Gore today at a press conference in Berlin, “but you can also see it positively, you should make the most of every day.” They had the title already before Fletcher’s death, he has now gained even more importance. The recordings began in the summer, shortly after Fletcher’s death. “Fletch would have loved this album. We are very much looking forward to sharing it with you soon and we can’t wait to present it live at shows next year.”
