Timo Maas, long time Placebo remixer, tells us he’s in the process of remixing Space Monkey supposedly to feature on the release of Placebo’s future single (following Infra-red)!! Apparently Space Monkey will be released after the ‘summer’, as always this is subject to change.
She Wants Revenge, tour support for Placebo in 2006 and fronted by one time Placebo collaborator Justin Warfield, have a new single out called Tear You Apart. The Placebo connection is that Hotel Persona have remixed the track and it is available in streaming format for you to listen to at the She Wants Revenge MySpace.

The music video for Placebo’s next singe, Infra-red, has arrived. It was directed by Ed Holdsworth and shot in Holborn, London.
You can watch the entire clip in streaming format :
Windows Media Player: Low | High
RealPlayer – Low | High
“I lied to you, we are the enemy.”
The video is an interesting piece of social and political commentary from the band. The theme being being the corrupt (American) government, and how their wrong-doing is exposed by a taskforce of millions of ants…seemingly representing the members of society banding together to expose the truth.
The single will be released on 19th June [in the UK].
The singles will feature remixes of ‘Infra-red’ by Hotel Persona, Nackt from Warren Suicide and Waltmann. The DVD single will feature the video, an exclusive making of the video documentary and a very special 8 minute version of the video for ‘Song to Say Goodbye’.
