PLACEBO have announced details of an extensive UK tour which will take place throughout the month of October.

Kicking off on 7th October at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, the long run of dates will take them to a variety of venues around the country including Caird Hall in Dundee before ultimately finishing up at London’s Brixton Academy on 23rd October.

The rock veterans have marked their return with the release of a brand new video for their cover of Talk Talk’s ‘Life’s What You Make It’. Originally featured on Placebo’s eponymous EP which came out last year, singer Brian Molko said: ““We covered Talk Talk’s ‘Life’s What You Make It’ because it is a song from the 80s that we still liked and we wondered if we could replicate Gwen Stefani’s global smash hit with her band’s cover of [Talk Talk’s] ‘It’s My Life’. That remains to be seen . . .”
