After fifteen years, six studio albums, 11 million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success Placebo are back, with a teaser album for fans while they record their new CD, due out 2013. In September 2012, the band played their biggest yet arena shows in Russia with dates in Moscow and St Petersburg. Included in their latest live set is the new highly charged lead track ‘B3’ from their new EP, due for release on October 15th. It features 5 brand new tracks and is an eclectic mix of newly written songs and older unreleased album session recordings. The band felt strongly that the fans should get to hear new music in the interim before the new album is released in 2013, and the music wasn’t a reflection in anyway of the direction of the new album. The EP will be released digitally and as a Limited Edition physical CD.
