Placebo have finished work on their eighth studio album.

The Every You Every Me hitmakers – comprising Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal – have told fans their first record in almost nine years, a follow-up to 2013’s Loud Like Love, is done and dusted and being primed for release.

The duo have now asked if fans would like them to release any NFTs, retro merch and more before they drop the LP and teased they are also in the process of booking tour date.

In a statement posted to Instagram, the band wrote: ‘Calling all Placebo
fans worldwide on the 2nd of May!

‘NFT’s, posters & art prints, masks, cassette tapes, retro tees, a brand new fan club, even a fanzine, maybe dolls…. what placebo stuff would you really like to get your hands on? “New music & concerts!!” is the rallying cry & we hear you.

‘Please do not despair & trust that Album 8 is finished & being primed for release. We are also presently busy booking live dates.

‘In the meantime, what else can we do for you? Can you help us by letting us know what you’re after? We’d love to hear from you.

‘And since we’ll all be seeing a lot more of each other soon, we’d really like to know. Sign up to our mailing list and we’ll send you a few questions to answer… link in bio.

‘It’s better to talk about it first before we get too serious & intimate, don’t you think? Peace & love, Brian & Stefan (sic)’

There are currently no further details regarding a release date, title or tracklist for the upcoming LP.

If they do end up going down the NFT route, the Meds rockers will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Kings of Leon, The Weeknd, Grimes and more.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), are an emerging market within blockchain where single-impression unique digital art and goods known as the n‘token’ can be sold.

Meanwhile, back in October Placebo marked 20 years since Black Market Music came out, and they celebrated the occasion with some special behind the scenes videos delving into the making of the record.
