|Hugely influential and hailed by Q magazine as “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known”, Depeche Mode and Mute are proud to announce the first five vinyl albums in a series that will see the band's entire studio album catalogue digitally re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl.
Music for the Masses, Some Great Reward, Songs of Faith and Devotion, Speak and Spell, Violator are released on Mute on 5 March 2007. Each collector’s edition is a brand new cut from the remastered audio, presented in gatefold packaging with the original LP art and sleeve notes by Daniel Miller.
Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode - Dave Gahan, Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher and Martin Gore - have spent over 400 combined weeks on the UK charts and continue to win critical acclaim across the world.

In the process they have sold over 72 million records and played to audiences in excess of 30 million throughout their remarkable 25-year career.
