Successful Album Crowdfunding

(Blog update taken from

On New Year’s eve. when the clock struck 12 and everyone wished each other a happy new year, our campaign was finished with an amazing 111%! We’re so happy we made it, that you will be making the new Model Depose album happen! Thank you! And a happy 2018 to you and your friends and families 🙂

What happens now?

Right now we’ve gained access to all the details of the contributions, and we can see what “tegenprestaties” have been selected by whom. Some of those will be sent to you in January, like the T-Shirt, Nightwatch EP, Splitting Light cd. The Pop-Up untitled EP will take some more time, as we have to hand-make them. And for our New Album / Art Edition we have no release date yet.

Those who ordered the T-shirt can expect an email about the sizes, because there was no room for that on the website. Those that ordered a New Album + T-shirt can do an early pick-up of the T-shirt at our shows (see below), or do a meet & greet in Groningen (contact us). Otherwise, we’ll send the whole package when the new album is released.

Finishing the album

The next couple of months we’re finishing and preparing the songs for the studio recording sessions that we’ve planned in March. After that, there’s mixing and mastering the album, artwork design, manufacturing CDs, setting up the promotion, photography, music video’s, setting up the release show, planning shows etc. A lot of work to do this year, so we’re careful about the release date until we’re absolutely sure about it. We’ll keep you updated about it; through posts here and on our social media sites:


We hope to see you at our shows this year! So far, these are confirmed:

  • 02.02.2018 Nieuwe Nor, Heerlen (NL)
  • 03.02.2018 Bibelot, Dordrecht (NL)

All the best and see you soon! Xx, Mariët, Erwin, David, Jobbe & Roeland

A tribute to Depeche Mode

Because Model Depose by accident almost became an anagram of Depeche Mode, we decided never to cover any of their songs. We broke our promise when invited to make a tribute to Depeche Mode. This is our version of the song Poison Heart from the album Spirit.

Debut album Splitting Light out Now!

Splitting Light-Digipack Order Splitting Light at:

â–º iTunes
â–º The Digipack
â–º Amazon mp3

The album which consists of 14 songs, combines sounds from New Wave, Indie Rock and Synthpop seamlessly. Wherever words are not enough to describe this world, Model Depose has been trying to pack these in their music. It is impressive how few succeeded as successfully as these ‘New Romantics of the presence’. Model Depose combine the immortalized attitude of icons such as The Cure, Depeche Mode, Placebo and Spandau Ballet with its completely own style mix of Synthpop and Indie Rock, creating their completely individual, authentic and intense sound. With Splitting Light the Dutch succeeded in creating in 14 tracks a world that is replete with emotion in all facets. Intensity, authenticity and absolute feeling fit together to form that’s rarely seen and could only been learned through experience. –
