Depeche Mode

Synth gods who rose out of the New Romantic scene back in the ’80s, with their breakout hit “Just Can’t Get Enough,” they were catapulted into the musical stratosphere with their subsequent releases. CDs like Catching Up With Depeche Mode, Music for the Masses and Violator solidified Depeche Mode as a musical force to be reckoned with.

With the powerful vocals of Dave Gahan (backed by Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher), this band hailing from Basildon, Essex, England, always puts on a lively and vivacious show. They have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide. Other notable hits are “Everything Counts,” “People Are People,” “Behind The Wheel,” “Personal Jesus,” and “Precious.”
