Synth-pop rock superstars Depeche Mode have just confirmed the details for a concert film of their show in Berlin, Germany last November.

British electro pioneers Depeche Mode have been around for quite some time now.
Between 1993’s ‘Songs of Faith and Devotion,’ Depeche Mode’s first No. 1 album, and ‘Ultra,’ their ninth record, the band lost multi-instrumentalist Alan Wilder, who’d had enough of the rock-star lifestyle, and nearly lost singer Dave Gahan to a drug habit that led to a suicide attempt in 1995.
It took Depeche Mode a decade to make the world-dominating album they’d been aiming for since the first synth squiggles of their debut record bounced out of speakers.
The two Depeche Mode albums leading up to 1990’s ‘Violator’ – ‘Black Celebration’ and ‘Music for the Masses’ – were just oiling the machine.
As far as intros go, 'Welcome to My World' was neat but redundant, a red carpet rolled down your own front steps. Taking the stage Friday night (Sept. 6) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Depeche Mode faced an arena full of people whose average age hovered well north of 30, and whose faith in and devotion to these broody-sexy U.K. synth-pop lifers spans decades.

If fans thought Depeche Mode steered a little off course on their 1997 album, ‘Ultra,’ their 10th album, 2001’s ‘Exciter,’ proved that there was a lot more damage that could be done to the band’s dwindling reputation. Not to mention their sales figures. ‘Ultra’ was the follow-up to 1993’s ‘Songs of Faith and Devotion,’ the synth-pop pioneers’ only No. 1 album. But the four-year break between the records turned out to be hellish. The band not only lost a member, it also almost lost its singer to a crippling drug habit.
