Good news for fans of Depeche Mode and their darkly romantic, semi-gothic brand of New Wave. The band has confirmed a European arena tour, scheduled for next spring, with a North American run to follow. The band will hit the road to support a new album, also due out in the spring.

The new platter will follow 2009's 'Sounds of the Universe,' so it's high time for new Depeche Mode.

Below is the band's extensive European itinerary, which is tightly packed and runs from early May through the end of July. American dates are on the way, and the band will hold a press conference in Paris tomorrow (Oct. 23) to discuss further plans and details.
