Depeche Mode kick off the North American leg of their tour in Detroit tonight. To celebrate the tour kickoff, Depeche Mode premiered the official video for "Should Be Higher," which is a live video shot on the Euro leg of the Delta Machine Tour. Check it out below:



Ahead of the tour kickoff, Depeche Mode's Andy Fletcher was interviewed by the Detroit Free Press and shared some memories about the early days and support from fans in Detroit. He recounted a 1989 visit to the city when the band went clubbing with Detroit techno pioneer Derrick May and was surprised to find how beloved Depeche Mode was:

"It was quite strange,” Fletcher recalls. "We were just mobbed by beautiful black people, young girls and boys. It was kind of weird — we always thought we were the whitest of the white. But I think the way we made music was in a similar vein to the way they made music."

Read the full piece on Depeche Mode in the Detroit Free Press.
