December 2, 2009


Having had an incredible year to date which has seen the band play to over 1 million people across the globe, Placebo have announced they are to release a new version of ‘Bright Lights’, mixed by Dave Bascombe (Soulwax, Goldfrapp, LadyHawke and Funeral For A Friend) on February 8th 2010 to continue where they left off in 2009.

The single will feature new remixes from the multi-talented Alex Metric and D’n’B new kid on the block, Randomer.

With their latest album ‘Battle For The Sun’ having sold over half a million sales worldwide so far this year and garnering critical acclaim across the board, Placebo have proved themselves to be just as relevant as they ever were:

“This is Placebo’s most coherent, energized album to date, displaying an unswerving focus.” - Classic Rock

“New album ‘Battle For The Sun’ is among some of Placebo’s finest work.” - Kerrang!

“Magnificently airy, stadium-sized tunes.” - The Telegraph

“Experience all the benefits of a great band.” - NME

“Placebo at their breathtaking, irresistible best.” - Mojo

Placebo recently claimed ‘Best Alternative‘ award at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2009, voted for by fans, showing the high regard they are still held in. Add that to their upcoming UK arena tour, which takes in London’s The O2, and you’ve got a very successful year.
