Depeche Mode will begin a six-week North American tour in October in support of its as-yet-untitled new album, due around the same time via Mute internationally and Reprise/Warner Bros. in North America. Dates and venues have not been announced for the North American portion, but an extensive European tour will begin Jan. 13 in Dresden, Germany and has dates on tap through April 3 in London.

As previously reported, the group is co-producing the new album with Ben Hillier (Doves, Blur). It will be the follow-up to 2001's "Exciter," which opened at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 421,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Last year, alternate versions of the group's hits were compiled for "Remixes 81-04," which sold more than 1 million copies worldwide, according to Mute. A remix of "Enjoy the Silence" by Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda hit No. 1 in Spain and Denmark and reached the top 10 in Germany and the United Kingdom.
