Placebo Get Experimental On Next Album

The London alternative rockers Placebo will be releasing their sixth studio album, Battle For The Sun on June 8th. The record was produced by David Bottrill (Ænima, Origin Of Symmetry, Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star) and was engineered by James Brown.

Lead singer Brian Molko has stated at least three main changes in the new album that makes it different than their previous:

1. New drummer Steve Forrest has replaced Steve Hewitt.

2. The band exercises their more experimental side by including brass instruments like trumpets and saxophones.


3. This is the first time Placebo will be releasing a 'thematic' album, where it's more of a story being told than a collection of songs.


By visiting their homepage, you can look at the tracklisting for the new album, pre-order the limited special Deluxe Box Set of BFTS (the first 500 copies will be hand-signed by the band), and download the new single, "Battle For The Sun" for free.



Placebo is still one of the greatest bands I've ever listened to. Pure Morning is a great song. It's a pity that Hewitt has been replaced though, makes the band seem less original in my eyes.
