Alternative legends Placebo have announced their new album is nearly ready and “being primed for release”.
In a lengthy and somewhat surprise Instagram post yesterday (May 2nd), core members Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal revealed they are adding the finishing touches to “Album 8”, the follow up to 2013’s Loud Like Love. They have further excited fans by mentioning live shows in the not too distant future.
The post also called on fans worldwide, asking what merch we’d like to see: “NFT’s, posters & art prints, masks, cassette tapes, retro tees, a brand new fan club, even a fanzine, maybe dolls…. what placebostuff would you really like to get your hands on?” they asked.
“’New music & concerts!!’ is the rallying cry & we hear you. Please do not despair & trust that Album 8 is finished & being primed for release. We are also presently busy booking live dates.”
“In the meantime, what else can we do for you? Can you help us by letting us know what you’re after? We’d love to hear from you. And since we’ll all be seeing a lot more of each other soon, we’d really like to know.”
