Loud Like Placebo

Placebo has lots to tell fans about this week. The English alternative rock band revealed the title and release dates for its seventh studio album, in addition to announcing dates for its first tour of 2013.

Loud Like Love is due out Sept. 17 in North America on Universal Music. Featuring 10 brand new tracks, the follow-up to 2009’s Battle For The Sun was recorded in London at RAK Studios in 2012 and earlier this year.

Fans have five options to choose from when it comes to the new album. Loud Like Love will be available as a standard CD, a double 12” colored vinyl set, a limited edition deluxe digi-pack, and a 3D lenticular super deluxe box set. Or you can just go with a digital version.

Preorders begin May 31.

The general onsale for the fall tour starts even sooner. With a fan presale ongoing now, tickets go on sale to the public Friday, May 24.
