Last week Depeche Mode held a press conference to announce the European leg of their 2013 world tour. A few weeks before the official press conference Dave Gahan was interviewed by Consequence Of Sound about the upcoming Depeche Mode album as well as his work on the latest Soulsavers album The Light The Dead See. As for the Depeche Mode portion of the interview, Gahan pretty much said what was revealed in last week's press conference - the album isn't finished, they've got about 20 songs, they're working with Anton Corbijn, etc.  Gahan did however, have a few more words to say about the rumors that Alan Wilder is back in the fold:

"I can say they are absolutely not true. I wish him all the best. It was great [having] him hanging out with us for a couple of days and playing with us at the Albert Hall. It was really a lot of fun and sort of a magical night...He was a real part of the puzzle and still remains on all that stuff that he worked on with us. Alan was really very, very instrumental in leading us in different directions."

Read the full interview over at Consequence of Sound.
