British rockers Depeche Mode are thrilled to be working together again - and insist they are getting on better than ever before.

Frontman Dave Gahan admits they were not at their best on 2001 album EXCITER due to tensions within the band, but he is optimistic their forthcoming release will be a return to form.

He explains, "The strangest thing is that we're all getting on pretty well.

"With the last album it all felt a bit dead. "This time we're all pulling together a lot more."
