Martin Gore said of the release, "Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern. I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It's just got something magical about it."

Dave Gahan added, "With this release we've completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we'll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. Delta Machine is no different, and I can't wait for all of our fans to hear it."

Following the release of their new album, Depeche Mode will embark on a European stadium tour, kicking off in Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park on May 7th. They will perform 34 shows in 25 European countries, featuring appearances at Milan's famed San Siro Stadium, the Stade De France in Paris, and Moscow's Locomotive Stadium before wrapping up the European leg of their tour in Minsk, Belarus on July 29.  A full North American tour will follow, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.
