Depeche Mode announced that they will release a new album in March 2013 on Columbia Records.
“I am very happy with how the album turned out,” multi-instrumentalist Martin Gore states. “The music has a similar vibe to ‘Violator’ and ‘Songs of Faith and Devotion,’ and I think the songs on the album are among some of the very best we’ve done.”
“The album has a very organic and direct feel to it,” says vocalist Dave Gahan. “It’s not a blues record, but it definitely has a soulful vibe. During the recording process we really tried to get the elements of performing and the live show into the album more.”

Trent Reznor released information regarding a new EP from his post-NIN project How To Destroy Angels via his facebook today. The band consists of his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, Rob Sheriden, and Atticus Ross, with whom Reznor worked on the scores for both The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Here is the message from the man himself:
Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.
Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.
Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!
