Depeche Mode was founded in 1980 by Dave Gahan, Andy Fletcher, Vince Clarke and Martin Gore. Vince Clarke quit the band after recording one album with the group and Alan Wilder was recruited to take his place. This new lineup remained in place for thirteen years, during which the group created some of their best work. Wilder left in 1995 and the band has remained a trio since then.
Over the course of their career, Depeche Mode has produced fourteen studio albums. However, their most successful albums were their last two records from the 1980s, Black Celebration and Music for the Masses. The albums established the group as dominant forces in the electronic music scene, which was slowly blooming. During this time, the band staged a historic concert at the Rose Bowl, where more than seventy thousand people showed up.
The band spawned several commercially successful albums after this period, including the triple platinum selling Violator. Other hits include Songs of Faith and Devotion, Ultra and Exciter.
