About Dave Gahan & Soulsavers

On Depeche Mode's 2009 world tour, U.K. production duo Soulsavers (Rich Machin and Ian Glover) supported the European batch of shows and forged a fortuitous relationship that would bear fruit in 2012. That year, Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan joined forces with Soulsavers on The Light the Dead See (V2 Records/Mute), a combination of Soulsavers' downtempo electronic mood music and Gahan's gloomy, distressed lyrics and vocals. The dramatic tone of the album was amped up by lush production and a bluesy haze, something both artists were well familiar with from their regular day jobs. However, it wasn't until their 2015 release, Angels & Ghosts, that the trio truly gelled. Instead of simply combining Gahan's words with Soulsavers' sounds, their sophomore release was a true collaborative effort, with all three artists receiving songwriting credits. Like The Light the Dead See, Angels & Ghosts dripped with blues- and gospel-influence. They toured in late 2015 with a full band for a series of intimate shows in Europe and the United States. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
