On September 16th London based Placebo will be releasing their seventh studio album titled Loud Like Love which will add to their impressive catalogue of six studio albums, three compilations, six EP’s, and thirty-one singles. I got a chance to see Placebo play at The Greek Theatre here in L.A. back in October of 2006 when they opened up for She Wants Revenge. They were great! I couldn’t believe all that sound came out of a three piece. Seeing them live prompted me to go out and buy more of their records. I don’t have them all but what I do have I dig so I’m looking forward to the new release. You can preorder the album starting Friday June 7th by clicking here. The album will be available as a 3D lenticular super deluxe box set, a limited edition deluxe digi-pack version, a double 12″ colored vinyl gatefold edition and a standard CD album. Placebo will begin the first leg of their Loud Like Love World Tour in Europe during the Fall. See tour dates below. Keep an eye on PlaceboWorld for future dates and an exclusive fan ticket pre-sale. So far I haven’t seen nor heard a new single online so while we wait for that let’s go back and watch the live video below where Placebo is joined on-stage by Frank Black as they cover the Pixies “Where Is My Mind.”
