Friends In Need: Placebo announce first full North American tour in seven years

In October of last year, British alt-rock survivalists Placebo played a pair of lonely stateside shows, one in New York City and the other in Los Angeles, with a promise of a full North American tour “sometime in 2014.”

Almost exactly a year later, and a year after the release of the band’s latest record Loud Like Love, that promise is fulfilled. Placebo earlier today announced their first full-on North American tour since 2007, and will play the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on October 12.

Check out the full run of dates below; tickets go on sale this Friday, August 22. Also be sure to catch up with Brian Molko in our October 2013 Vanyaland interview here, and re-familiarize yourself with the band’s recent output with a pair of video clips from the Loud Like Love LP after the date jump.
