Depeche Mode return with their 13th studio album Delta Machine - the album is out today internationally and arrives tomorrow in North America.  Ahead of the release, Depeche Mode have been in Europe over the last few days for some live television performances and interviews.

One of the best recent interviews was published in the Sun on March 22nd.  Some of the highlights: Dave Gahan discussed blowing off the Brits and declining the award for 'Most Influential Band' ("if they won't play us on air, we won't be their most influential band"), Martin Gore talked about sobriety and the old days ("just for the fun of it I'd get naked in hotel bars"), and Gore's recent barb-exchange with Simon Cowell was also discussed ("I think the majority of the world agreed with me").  Read the full interview here.

A few other recent live performances and interviews are posted below.
