London alt-rock band Placebo will embark on their first full North American tour since 2007, beginning Oct. 8 in Philadelphia. Touring in support of their seventh studio release, Loud Like Love (UMe), the full list of dates is below.

It is the first time the band have released their album on streaming services worldwide, achieving over 2.5 million plays on the major platforms including Spotify & Deezer, in it’s first week and 15 million streams to date. 

Loud Like Love is available in five different formats:

Following the singles “Too Many Friends” and the title track, “Loud Like Love,” the band released the newest single, “A Million Little Pieces,” in June.

Placebo has, to date, recorded six studio albums and sold more than 12 million records worldwide. Their dark and melodic trademark sound featuring singer Brian Molko’s instantly recognizable vocals has become one of the strongest brands in rock over the past decade. Placebo has enjoyed an ever growing level of success around the world with their unique blend of music and outstanding live performances.
