New Dave Gahan & Soulsavers Album “Angels & Ghosts” to be Released October 23rd

New Track “All of This and Nothing” Out Today

Band to Play Six Special, Intimate Shows in USA & Europe

Lyric Video / stream:

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Dave Gahan, along with musical partner Soulsavers, will release a new album October 23rd. Entitled “Angels & Ghosts”, this is the collaborators’ second album, following their critically-acclaimed 2012 release “The Light the Dead See”. The album will be released in digital, as well as physical CD and vinyl formats, worldwide on October 23rd through Columbia Records. The “utterly riveting” album boasts nine original tracks, all written by Dave Gahan & Soulsavers.

The album launches today with the online premiere of the moody, cinematic anthem “All of This and Nothing”, on VEVO.

An evolution from their first album, “Angels & Ghosts” proves to be a markedly stronger and more hard-hitting body of work. Listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of dark, brooding sounds, elements inspired by gospel and blues, and the stark beauty that has become a signature of Dave and Soulsavers’ works. Dave Gahan’s emotionally powerful voice has never sounded better, and drives the album forward over a landscape of meticulously crafted instrumentation.

A transatlantic collaboration, the writing process started with Dave Gahan and Soulsavers’ Rich Machin exchanging demos and ideas from their respective studios in lower Manhattan and rural England. They then recorded the album with additional musicians in studios around the world, including classic locations such as Sunset Sound in Los Angeles and Electric Lady in New York. The end result is a vibrant, live-sounding album, and proof of the “instant and obvious fit” Machin felt writing with Gahan.

To fully showcase the powerful, live nature of the album, Dave Gahan & Soulsavers will bring the project to life in a series of six special shows in iconic, intimate venues across the US and Europe. Starting October 19th at the first show in Los Angeles, Dave Gahan & Soulsavers will perform as a ten-piece band, with shows in New York, London, Berlin, Paris and Milan to follow. Tickets for all shows will go on sale September 18th and select shows will be broadcast and streamed for fans worldwide. Full dates and venues are listed below.

Listened to "All of This and Nothing" last night; for a first listen I really enjoyed it. A driving sort of rhythm, quite an urgent feel to it.

Always nice to see Mr G back, and Soulsavers are great!
sort of read the F.A.Q.

The new song is brilliant, I can't stop playing it. It has this magical feeling and it touches again the most inner part of me. The lyrics are very deep and can be interpreted in personal as well as worldly aspect.
I think SoulSavers and Dave Gahan are geniuses.

It doesn't grab me. I wanted to like it, but its just not doing anything for me. Dave with Martin is magic, this I will buy for collection purposes, but probably won't do more than a couple spins.

Dave's project with Soulsavers was a blessing for me during a very dark time in my life. I am so excited for the new record and show. I need the ticket Gods to bless me next week when attempting to purchase tickets. Anyone else going to try for any of the shows?

I was nervous to press the play button, I didn't want to be disappointed. Glad I did press it. The intro was a suspense but everything fell into place once Dave started singing. Beautiful rich Instrumentation, impressive lyrics & serious vocal melodies. The second listen was even better. if the rest of the album is like that, then it's worth the wait.
Well done!
Shackled and bound by the sound of his voice.
