Placebo announce two fall US shows, promise full stateside tour in 2014

UK alt-rock survivalists Placebo recently collaborated with Bret Easton Ellis in the music video for “Too Many Friends,” and now the band is ready to perform at the American author’s two favorite US cities this fall.

With seventh studio album Loud Like Love expected September 16, Brian Molko and crew will play a pair of stateside dates, October 15 at Terminal 5 in New York City, and then the Wiltern in Los Angeles on October 18.

While the bummer news is that those two are likely the only stops on this side of the Atlantic this year, the band notes that “fans will also be pleased to know that a full USA tour is scheduled for 2014.”

So there’s that.

Tickets for both the NYC and LA shows are on sale this Friday, with the Terminal 5 show through Bowery Presents.

Check out the “Too Many Friends” video below, as well as a Loud Live Love album teaser trailer.
