The Horrors will open for Depeche Mode in London

They're one of four supports for the European stage of the Global Spirit Tour

Depeche Mode have revealed the supports for their European shows, including their sole UK date in London.

The Horrors are the chosen band for London Stadium on 3 June, staying on board for six other dates, including Lille in France and a number in Germany.

They’ve not released any new material since 2014, when their fourth album Luminous was released.

Could new dates, then, suggest a return to music-making activity for Faris Badwan and the gang?

The other three bands across the European leg of Depeche Mode’s Global Spirit Tour are The RaveonettesAlgiers and Maya Jane Coles.

Depeche Mode released their 14th album Spirit in March, leading with the single Where’s The Revolution?

The European tour kicks off in Stockholm on 5 May – The Raveonettes support that night – and concludes on 23 July in Romania.

Tickets are on sale now. The full list of dates including supports:
