Depeche Mode Weekend On VH1 Europe

April, 14, 2008 / 0 comments

A definitive music anthology weekend of one of the most successful bands to emerge from the New Romantic and New Wave Era in the early 80’s till present.

For over 25 years Depeche Mode have been making ground-breaking, multi-million selling albums, and flying the flag of British musical excellence around the world. Depeche Mode began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit that gradually developed a darker, more dramatic alternative sound. They were one of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers becoming an enormously dominant musical force during the eighties, continuing with their alternative sounds in the United States in the 90’s with a revival well into the turn of the millennium. Having recorded 11 albums to date the band continues to tour and speculate about a new release in 2008.

Vh1 has all of this and more on an exclusive Depeche Mode Weekend!
