Dave Gahan

"There’s something good happening…." Flood mixing new DM record!

I'm loving the little bits and pieces coming out the last few days on the new DM record. The day after we find out the new album will see an April 2013 release, we get word that Flood will be mixing the record! In a new Soulsavers interview for DIY, Dave says, "we’ve got about twenty songs on the go at the moment, and we’ll keep going to a certain point. We’ll look at them and decide which ones will end up on the record. Flood’s going to be mixing the album as well". In another nice bit of info, seems Dave and Mart wrote another song together. This time rather then Dave adding to a Mart...

New DM record in April

Rolling Stone has put up their review of last night's Soulsavers studio session with Dave Gahan that had Jonathan Kessler saying that the forthcoming Depeche Mode record is slated for an April 2013 release date. He also said that following this performance, Dave "is now fully immersed in his day job" with Depeche. Further one offs are possible, but we'll have to wait and see. Last night's seven song performance was recorded and, according to Kessler, will be available "quickly" for interested parties or the web. We shall see where it shows up. Nice to see Daniel Miller was in attendance as well. Set...

"This one I won't delete…."

Ok, so Martyn LeNoble just tweeted out, "This one I won't delete.... I'm excited to play a "secret" show with the Soulsavers w/Dave Gahan this weekend." Wait, am I really posting about a Tweet? Is this what it's coming to? Yes. This upcoming album, tour, and everything else should be fun to keep up with, lol. Maybe I'm just getting old. Anyway, so since he's saying he won't be deleting this tweet about playing a show with Dave and the Soulsavers... it makes you wonder what are all the details.  Is he just teasing us? Some sort of ploy to keep you interested in the record? Do we know and we're...
