The band has sold over 100 million albums worldwide since her debut album 1981 "Speak & Spell," thanks to hits along the way such as 1984 "people are people" and 1989 "Personal Jesus."
Depeche Mode textured sound and Moody lyrics made it one of the biggest bands of the British New Wave emerged in the early 1980s, along with groups like The Boomtown Rats.
The title "Delta Machine" reflects the musicians conflicting sounds-they are influenced by the Delta blues, but they also use technology such as computers and synthesizers.
"We feel like our music a mixture of organic and inorganic is," said Gore.
NEW TOUR, NEW APPROACH
The band appearance at the SXSW conference is unusual, as her performance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" this week. Depeche Mode is usually straight from rehearsal Tour without time to record a new album went well, said Gore.
"You'd think we that at some point in this career would have done, but we haven't," he said, referring to the promotion of albums prior to the release.
Depeche Mode will start on the 17th tour in Tel Aviv on May 7, with the North American leg scheduled to begin in Detroit on August 22.
Gore, having spent much of the last three decades on the road and seven years ago, said touring these days different is drink.
"The last tour I really enjoyed because it was the first one that I would really is bright enough to take in everything and enjoy the concerts and then enjoy the cities the next day," he said. "So I'm really curious about this one."

Gahan told "my life has only gradually better," an audience at Conference. "I feel like I take part in it in a very different way."
Asked how he manages to stay so active on stage, Gahan answered that when he gets up for people who bought tickets, he does his best to entertain them.
There is nothing worse, he said, than artists on stage staring at their shoes while wearing "camping clothes."
