forced to mode 2023 02 promo byAndreMuellerFORCED TO MODE (F2M) is considered the “world’s best DEPECHE MODE cover band” (Sonic Seducer,, Monkeypress...) whose shows have already received enthusiastic acclaim in 16 countries across Europe. The audience and press reactions, as well as the numerous concert videos and live CDs of the band, clearly speak for themselves and label the F2M shows as tribute concerts in a “league of their own”. The fan base that has built up around FORCED TO MODE is also impressive: no other band - apart from DEPECHE MODE themselves - has more views or posts in the largest German-speaking DM forum. FORCED TO MODE’s own YouTube channel has over 3.5 million video views.

But above all, it is the highly energetic live performance, the “close-to-the-original voices” and the perfectionist attention to sound detail that make the F2M tribute shows so unique and unforgettable! FORCED TO MODE bring back the spirit of the earlier, iconic DEPECHE MODE eras and skilfully revive it with great finesse in show and sound on the big stage. Constantly changing setlists and rarely, sometimes never before played DM songs are a big part of the band’s credo. F2M have also won the hearts of DM fans with their themed shows (tour or album specials, B-side concerts, shows with symphony orchestra or string quartet, etc.).

In over twelve years, F2M have played more than 450 concerts, three “acoustic” or “electro-acoustic-string tours” and various anniversary and special shows. The repertoire of the three musicians from Berlin now includes over 130 DEPECHE MODE songs and there is no end in sight...
