Depeche Mode is heading for Nikon Theater at Jones Beach on Sept. 8, as part of the band's upcoming “The Delta Machine World Tour.”

The electronic music pioneers will also stop at Barclays Center on Sept. 6. Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. April 6 through Live Nation.

“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and performing,” said singer Dave Gahan in a statement. “There are so many die hard Depeche Mode fans who have been with us every step of this journey that I can’t wait to see.”

The band will release its 13th album “Delta Machine” on March 26. They play “The Late Show with David Letterman” tonight, as well as a live set from the show on starting at 8 p.m.

“I enjoy being in front of an audience because our songs really take on a life of their own when performed live,” multi-instrumentalist/singer Martin Gore said in a statement. “When we’re performing, the stage almost becomes a mirror for the people who have been there since the beginning, and we become a reflection of our audience.”

Here's the band's new single “Heaven.”
