To celebrate Heroes' belated 1st birthday celebrations, we are launching the new Placebo album, titled 'Meds' on Sat Mar 11th at 9pm at Jekyll and Hyde, Edinburgh.
Since putting Britpop out of its misery in 97 with spunk rock songs about transexuals on speed, the joys of asphixiation and post-coital misery, Placebo have quietly become one of Britain's biggest bands.
This new album sees them challenging themselves and roping in the current darlings of the indie scene - Bloc Party, The Kills and Ladytron - to help expand their sound. The same themes of loss, confusion, revenge, love, addiction and dependence are there but this time around have a greater depth.
We will be giving away free merchandise including CDs, T-Shirts, Stickers, Posters and whatever else.
You will hear the new album ahead of its release, mixed into all the old hits. Your DJ for the evening, Voodoo Gregor will also be playing old and new punk, electro and evil pop records for your aural pleasure.
