The Placebo Diaries
Lifted from their now critically-acclaimed, top five (in twenty countries!) album ‘Battle For The Sun’, Placebo are pleased to announce the release of their new single ‘The Never-Ending Why’ on the 14th of September. High energy and utterly infectious, ‘The Never-Ending Why’ harks back to classic Placebo, kicking into life with a dense barrage of noise and building into a chorus that clamps itself onto your brain and refuses to let go. The single will be available on 7” vinyl with an exclusive b-side and as a download bundle that will feature the 7” tracks plus a remix.
Placebo have been highly active on the live circuit this year with 25 European festival appearances this summer alone (including a return to the mainstage at the Reading/Leeds festivals this August), followed by a huge arena tour booked for this December that includes a headline appearance at The O2 Arena in London on December 9th.
The December dates are as follows:
Tuesday 08th Birmingham LG Arena
Wednesday 09th London The O2
Friday 11th Bridlington Spa
Saturday 12 Manchester Central
Monday 14th Glasgow SECC
Tuesday 15th Dublin Olympia Theatre
Wednesday 16th Dublin Olympia Theatre
