Placebo announce Loud Like Love, massive European tour, neighbors continue banging on the wall for them to keep it down

So, the band Placebo still exists. It was easy to assume they had just faded away like so many late-90s/early-00s alternative rock bands. It’s hard to be sure if alternative rock is even still a genre. It’s also hard to muster complaints about their continued presence, particularly when they bring a sexy album title like Loud Like Love to the table. Not hard to read between the lines on that one; loud love equals bangin’. Ballin’. Layin’ Pipe. In all probability this album will be related in a big way to one of the numerous kinds of penetrative intercourse that can be had by two (or more) consenting adults.

A less likely but still possible explanation is that Loud Like Love is a concept album about two people who are deeply in love and both going deaf, although neither realizes it. So they just shout constantly. To replicate this experience, watch any Meg Ryan movie with the volume on the TV maxed. Granted, the former scenario seems more suited for the feel of the album, but both are just pure conjecture; the tracklisting hasn’t even been announced yet! The preorder goes up on May 31, so all will be revealed then.

In the meantime, a European tour has been announced, and it is extensive. Neither contrived RomComs nor raucous sexual activity guaranteed.
