Nominees for the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Depeche Mode remains one of the most defining bands of all time, constantly experimenting and reinventing its futuristic industrial sounds since its debut in 1981 with Speak And Spell. The quartet from Basildon, England refined its sound with electronic layers, fueled by the synthesizers of the post-punk era that landed them in the New Wave category with hits like "Everything Counts" and "People Are People". But their poppy synths took on a darker tone in the mid-80s with albums like the Goth-laden Black Celebration and Music For The Masses, establishing them as pioneers of a genre that was their own - it was Kraftwerk meets Bowie. But it was 1990's seminal Violator that finally placed the band at its apex. And while the Nineties releases reflected some darker personal moments and Depeche Mode becomes a trio after Alan Wilder's departure, they continued to churn out prodigious music and toured extensively well into the millennium. Martin Gore's celebrated songwriting skills, Andy Fletcher's talent on the keyboards and the personality and flair of frontman Dave Gahan have never wavered. After 2009's remarkable Sounds of the Universe and 2014's Delta, Depeche Mode returned in 2016 with Spirit, which featured the single "Where's The Revolution?" Good question… We say it's at their performance at Lollapalooza Paris.
