Depeche Mode released their landmark album Violator in 1990.
HALO looks at how Violator established Depeche as one of the UK’s biggest and most respected musical exports around the world.
The book explores how Violator came together, asks why the song-writing and production took Depeche to a new level and examines how touring and clever marketing were key to the album’s success.
HALO also looks at the impact on the band and fans, as well as how Violator finally brought the wider music industry and critics round to the Depeche Mode phenomenon.
The book is written by Kevin May and David McElroy and wil be published in March 2020 – 30 years on from Violator‘s release.
