Placebo Announce New Album Release Date

March 16, 2009
Placebo Announce New Album Release DatePlacebo have confirmed that they will release their new album on June 8th.

The album, entitled 'Battle For The Sun', is the group's first new studio effort since 2006's 'Meds'.

The album's title track will be given a world exclusive play on BBC Radio One DJ Zane Lowe's show from 7pm tomorrow (March 17th).

'Battle For The Sun' was recorded over three months with producer Dave Bottrill in Toronto, Canada and mixed in London by Alan Moulder.

Singer Brian Molko said the band had made an album “about choosing life, about choosing to live, about stepping out of the darkness and into the light”.

He added: “Not necessarily turning your back on the darkness because it’s there, it’s essential; it’s a part of who you are, but more about the choice of standing in the sunlight instead.”

(by Jason Gregory)
