European Summer Support Acts Announced!
The Raveonettes, The Horrors, Algiers, and Maya Jane Coles to Support Summer European Dates

Depeche Mode are excited to announce the support acts for their upcoming summer European tour. Support duties on the massive 34 date run will be split between four separate acts: The Raveonettes, The Horrors, Algiers, and Maya Jane Coles.

The Raveonettes will cover all dates between Stockholm, Sweden on May 5 and Prague, Czech Republic on May 25.

The Horrors will cover all dates between Leipzig, Germany on May 27 and Munich, Germany on June 9.

Algiers will cover all dates between Hannover, Germany on June 11 and Gelsenkirchen, Germany on July 4.

Maya Jane Coles will cover all dates between St. Petersburg, Russia on July 13 and Cluj-Napoca, Romania on July 23.

The Raveonettes are an LA based indie rock duo from Denmark. They are Sune Rose Wagner (guitar and vocals) and Sharin Foo (bass, guitar and vocals). Widely credited as one of the key influencers in the garage rock revival of the noughties, The Raveonettes have rightfully earned their place in Rock n' Roll history. The band continue to evolve sonically and visually as their live shows continue to captivate audiences around the world.

In the decade since The Horrors burst, clad in black, onto the London music scene with their debut album 'Strange House'(Loog) they have continually innovated and tested their own boundaries. Following a Mercury music nomination and extensive touring they retreated to their studio in East London to record their next record 'Skying' (XL Records), which was released in 2011 to rave reviews around the UK and Europe and was followed by two years of touring; culminating in a sold-out show at London's Brixton Academy. 2014's 'Luminous' (XL Records)was the band's second top 10 release and saw the band tour around the world and begin to headline festivals around the UK.

Algiers is a band of musicians born in Atlanta, Georgia, the rotten hub of the Ol' American South, where W.E.B. Dubois once saw a riot goin' on, and where the hell and high water swirls 'round to the knees.

On top of winning numerous awards, 29-year-old British-Japanese DJ/producer Maya Jane Coles has amassed millions of plays on YouTube and Spotify, and can boast a staggering 3.2 million Soundcloud followers! 2017 sees Maya release her most substantial body of work to date; her sophomore album 'Take Flight' on her own label, I/AM/ME.

Warpaint To Open For All US & Canada Dates Of The Global Spirit Tour

Starting August 23rd in Salt Lake City, and finishing in Alberta, Canada on October 27th, DM are excited to have Warpaint as the opener for all US & Canada dates of the Global Spirit tour.

Rolling Stone recently praised their single "Whiteout," saying the track "enshrouds an austerely crackling dub-funk beat in refracted guitar shimmer as interweaving voices resolve in a Sufi state of opaque desire." Their critically acclaimed third album "Heads Up" was released in September of 2016.

For more on Warpaint, visit their website at warpaintwarpaint.com.

From Depeche Mode





F.O.X. added as second support act for select European dates

The UK-based band has been added in Bratislava, Budapest, Prague and Leipzig
Depeche Mode are pleased to announce that F.O.X. have been added as a second support act on the following shows:

May 20 - Bratislava, Slovakia
May 22 - Budapest, Hungary
May 24 - Prague, Czech Republic
May 27 - Leipzig, Germany

The band will perform before The Raveonettes in Bratislava, Budapest and Prague, and before The Horrors in Leipzig.

More details about F.O.X. are available on their website or Facebook page.

F.O.X are a female fronted synth pop act from Essex, UK. Having released 2 albums - their debut 'Chimera' and follow up 'Hypoxia' the band have gained National and International praise along the way for their eye-popping, high energy live shows, major versus minor songwriting and use of electronics.

"It's a synth-tastic slice of pop - rather like The Gossip might sound if all guitars were suddenly outlawed" - BBC Radio 1 

"It feels like you've been invited to the great disco on the Sun, and you shall dance on the stars until the grand supernova ends us all." - 1Q Music
