The band will play London, Glasgow, Liverpool and more in support of new album
Placebo have announced a massive tour of UK and Europe for winter 2022. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 17 November.
The tour comes in support of the band's brand new album Never Let Me Go, set for release on Friday 25 March. The haunting new single from the album 'Surrounded By Spies' was dropped alongside the tour announcement. Listen to the single and see a detailed list of the band's UK tour dates below.
Songwriter Brian Molko says of the single, 'I began writing the lyrics when I discovered my neighbours were spying on me on behalf of parties with a nefarious agenda.
'I then began to ponder the countless ways in which our privacy has been eroded and stolen since the introduction of worldwide CCTV cameras that now employ racist facial recognition technologies; the rise of the internet and the cellphone, which has turned practically every user into a paparazzo and spectators in their own lives, and how we have mostly all offered up personal information to enormous multinationals whose sole intent is to exploit us.'
