Placebo's new taste in sound

Brian Molko of Placebo

OMG! We are soooo excited!! Seriously! Rockers Placebo are about to release an EP (mini CD) of 5 new songs to give fans a taste of things to come. Titled B3, the highly charged title track B3 exemplifies their dark and melodic trademark sound and features singer Brian Molko’s instantly recognizable vocals. A new studio album by Placebo — Molko (guitar/vocals), Stefan Olsdal (bass) and Steve Forrest (drums) — is due to follow the EP in 2013. While not a reflection of the direction of the new album, the band felt strongly that their fans should get to hear new music in the interim. Placebo has also launched the #B3KISS Competition, asking fans to create their own version of the B3 EP artwork. To enter, fans need to HashTag their photo #B3KISS on Instagram or Twitter, or upload it here: The band will choose their favorite version and the winner will receive a framed test print of the B3EP artwork, signed by Placebo. The competition closes 31 October 2012. Listen to the new song, B3, HERE! Now let's hope the band tour South Africa soon....pretty please!
