UK group Placebo will release Never Let Me Go, their first album in over eight years, on March 25 via Rise Records. It's also their first made as a duo, following drummer Steve Forrest's departure in 2015. “I wanted to capture the confusion of what it's like to be alive today,” says bandleader Brian Molko of the new album, “the feeling of being lost, always walking in a labyrinth, continuously being overwhelmed by information and opinions.” You can stream four songs off it below.

Placebo will also be in North America in September for their first dates here in eight years, with stops in Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Austin. The tour wraps up at NYC's Brooklyn Steel on 9/18. Cold Cave open the L.A. show (9/10 at The Greek) but no other openers have been announced.

Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Friday, March 11 at 10 AM local time, and all dates are listed below.
