Violator is the seventh studio album by British synth pop band Depeche Mode, originally released in March 1990 via Mute Records.  

Depeche Mode are a British synth pop rock band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards), and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter from 1980 until 1981).

Depeche Mode released their debut record in 1981, Speak & Spell, bringing the band onto the British new wave scene. Clarke left the band after the release of the album, leaving the band as a trio to record A Broken Frame, released the following year. Gore took over lead songwriting duties and, later in 1982, Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) officially joined the band to fill Clarke's spot, establishing a line-up that would continue for the next thirteen years.

The first Depeche album to sell over a million copies in the United States, Violator is often regarded as Depeche Mode's finest work.

Not only containing the world hits "Personal Jesus" (later beautifully reinterpreted by Johnny Cash) and "Enjoy The Silence" (with its epic video), each and every song on Violator is worthy of mentioning: for instance the beautiful and haunting album closer "Clean", and two further hit singles "Policy Of Truth" and "World In My Eyes", all fine examples of Gahan, Wilder and Gore's combined magic.

Violator is the band's first album to reach the top 10 on the US Billboard 200, peaking at number seven. The album also reached #2 in the UK, #28 in New Zealand and #42 in the Australian ARIA Albums Charts.

The release of Violator was supported by the World Violation Tour.

This album is a 2019 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeve and remastered audio, pressed in Europe via Mute.
