New Depeche Mode Album Dropping By End Of 2012

    Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore might be booked up working with former bandmate Vincent Clarke on their new outfit, VCMG. But that apparently has kept Gore from scheduling studio time for Depeche Mode, who he said should be dropping a new album by the end of 2012. That’s what he told The Quietus, who also learned that the band will start recording in March. That also happens to be when VCMG’s new album, Ssss, drops — March 12, to be exact — so here’s hoping Gore can indeed split his time between the two projects. [FACT]
