Formed in 1980 in Essex, England, Depeche Mode’s current line-up consists of singer Dave Gahan, primary songwriter, guitarist, and keyboardist Martin Gore (taking over from Vince Clarke in 1982), withAndy Fletcher on keyboards and bass guitar. Following Vince Clarke’s departure after their debut album “Speak and Spell,” the band took on a gradual darker, more Gothic sound and style that was reflected in their visuals, and remains a distinctive defining trademark of the band today.

Their album “Songs of Faith and Devotion” hit No. 1 in the UK and US at the same time, making them one of just eleven UK acts to achieve this feat, alongside a short list of artists that includes Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and The Beatles!! Q magazine called them simply "the most popular electronic band the world has ever known”.
