Placebo announce ‘retrospective album’ and new EP

Brian Molko and co. are celebrating two decades as a band.

Placebo are celebrating twenty years as a band this year, and are heading out on a special UK tour this winter, playing old classics that haven’t seen the stage for years.

In addition to this, the band have just announced a ‘retrospective album’ called ‘A Place For Us To Dream’, as part of a release which will also include a new EP of previously unreleased material called ‘Life Is What You Make It’. Both releases come out on 7th October.

If that wasn’t enough news, a new song - ‘Jesus’ Son’ - will appear on both the album and EP, and released in advance on 19th August.
