It appears we're only weeks away from an official Depeche Mode 2013/2014 world tour announcement.  A few weeks ago a Russian fansite reported a press conference was planned for October 23rd in Paris, and today depechemode.de (German fansite) is reporting the same October 23rd date.  They are also reporting the German shows will be in open-air venues next summer, with tickets for those gigs scheduled to go on sale October 27th.  The info (with respect to the timing of the German shows) seems to corroborate the tour itinerary that made the rounds in July.  The itinerary was later dismissed by the band's manager Jonathan Kessler, though he stopped short of calling the itinerary bogus.

The German site has been a credible source for DM info in the past, so at the very least, I'd put my money on the press announcement coming October 23rd. Kessler has stated previously that the tour information would be revealed by late fall, and a few months ago he confirmed an April release date for the new Depeche Mode album.

In the meantime, yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of Music For The Masses, so why not enjoy the silence a couple of videos.  Two different videos were made for "Strangelove" and both are posted below:

"Strangelove" (original video directed by Anton Corbijn)
