Depeche Mode are reaching out and touching their fans with their upcoming fall Global Spirit Tour, which will support their 14th album. And on Tuesday, it was announced that they'll be getting the help of Warpaint.

Starting August 23, Warpaint will be joining the legendary New Wave rockers in Salt Lake City. The Global Spirit Tour will be tacked onto Warpaint's already-in-process tour, which got its start at Coachella and will then trek around the U.S. all summer leading up to their opening gig. Warpaint will ride around with Depeche Mode until October 27, when they will end up in Edmonton, Alberta.

"I almost sh*t my pants when we heard we were up for this..." Warpaint's Jenny Lee Lindberg wrote on Instagram. "If my 12 yr old self would have ever thought in a million years this is what I would be doing w my life, I may have just died right then and there;) !! I'm so goddamn excited to announce our upcoming US tour w @DEPECHEMODE!!! gonna be on fire. So grateful!"
