Depeche Mode don't think their music can change the world. That won't stop them from trying

7:30 p.m. Sunday, Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., $29.50-$129.50, wellsfargocenterphilly.com

    Depeche Mode don't think their music can change the world. That won't stop them from trying
    As audiences will witness during Sunday's gig at Wells Fargo Center, Depeche Mode have gone far beyond the twee-pop electronica of its first album, Speak & Spell. Since that spare 1981 debut, principle songwriter/guitarist Martin Gore has with each passing album brought the dark electronic trio further into the harsh lyrical reality of sex, anxiety, religion, malaise, aggression, and social unrest, increasingly with a bleak, and yet somehow simultaneously hopeful, edge.
