Placebo return to what awaits them on June 12th with new album Battle for the Sun, preceded by single ‘For What It’s Worth’ on June 5th.
The three-piece have been recently re-invigorated by new drummer Steve Forrest and the press release notes – “complete artistic freedom following the end of their contract with Virgin”. Battle for the Sun is being self-released by the band.
It was recorded over a period of three months in Toronto studio and mixed in London by Alan Moulder. The band are calling their new material ‘hard pop’. Make up your own mind.
They’re certainly dressing like the Manics circa 92.
Irish dates are to be confirmed.
