+ Also it has been confirmed that Placebo are currently in Toronto, Canada doing additional recording:
On a recent trip to Toronto, I ran into queer guitarist Stefan Olsdal from the British alternative-rock trio Placebo. He said they were in Canada recording new album with a new drummer. The already written material will have a rock edge to it in the style of PJ Harvey and My Bloody Valentine. Olsdal also promises that Placebo will take to the road again soon.
Placebo are back in the studio working on a new album! The band finished their last touring campaign in September of last year in the USA. Since then the lads have taken some much needed time out and over the past couple of months have been hard at work writing and demoing new material in London. The boys are now recording with producer David Bottrill (the man behind Tool’s ‘Aenima’, ‘Salival’ and ‘Lateralus’ albums, Silverchair’s ‘Diorama’ and dEUS ‘The Ideal Crash’). Engineering the album is James Brown who worked with the band on ‘Meds’.
…And on the drums with Placebo…?????!!!!! Introducing… Mr Steve Forrest! Hailing from Modesto, California, he was previously the drummer with American rock band, Evaline. Some of you may have spotted Steve playing with Evaline supporting Placebo on their US tour in October ’06.
