Depeche Mode have shared a new teaser for their upcoming announcement, scheduled for next week (October 4).
Earlier this week (September 27), the band posted a studio photo on Instagram dated 4.10.22, next Tuesday.
Another video has now been shared ahead of the announcement, confirming the time of the announcement (1pm CET, 12pm BST) and the word: “BERLIN”.
“Almost join us,” wrote the band.
At the moment no further details have been shared about what the announcement will be, but the new post promises “more information soon”.
The announcement comes after singer Dave Gahan and the band’s lead singer Martin Gore were recently photographed in the studio working on new music. “Find stability in what we know and love, and focus on what gives life meaning and purpose,” they then wrote.
Check out the new teaser from Tuesday’s announcement in Berlin below.
The band’s new announcement comes after founding member and keyboardist Andy Fletcher died earlier this year aged 60.
Fletcher was a member of the band for more than four decades, beginning with the release of their debut album “Speak & Spell” in 1981. That album included chart-topping hits such as “Dreaming Of Me,” “New Life ” and “Can’t Get Enough”. Depeche Mode had their first international hit in 1984 with “People Are People”.
Speaking about the future of Depeche Mode to the NME last year before Fletcher’s death, Gahan revealed that the band would be back in the studio in 2022.
He said: “There’s a lot of things we’ve done with Depeche Mode that I’m really proud of. I think it’s come with time and age. Martin put out a record last year that I really liked. I actually bought a copy. because otherwise I wouldn’t look good.
“I know he is working on his studio too, so I think we will meet sometime next year. I hope at least to chat about what we both think that we could get on with.”
