Depeche Mode have unveiled the line-up of support acts that will join them on the UK and European leg of their ‘Memento Mori World Tour’.
The duo will launch the 34-show run on May 16 following a string of North American dates in support of their 15th studio album of the same name.
On Wednesday, April 12, Dave Gahan and Martin Gore announced the five acts that will join them for the shows, which play through August 11.
Cold Cave and Young Fathers will join Depeche Mode for select shows, alongside Berlin-based band Hope, former Savages singer Jehnny Beth and British trip-hop band Haelos.
The ‘Memento Mori’ album and tour follows the passing of founding member Andy Fletcher last year, with Dave sharing of the project: “It’s been a really enjoyable process, making this record with Martin, and James Ford, and Marta Salogni.
“We get to make music and we get to play music for you, hopefully bring a sense of joy and togetherness in our own small way, in a world that seems to be constantly in some kind of turmoil.
“It sometimes feels a bit strange to be able to do this, any time, but to be able to walk on a stage and bring some joy to a lot of people, I hope, is something that I think we are pretty proud of.”
‘Memento Mori’ is out now.
