Placebo have announced that they will be releasing a brand new EP titled "B3" next month.

The trio, who are currently working on their seventh studio album, will release the new EP on October 12. It is their first new material in over two years.

The EP contains five tracks, including the title track "B3", which you can hear a live version of at the bottom of the page.

Placebo released a live DVD, which was titled "We Come In Pieces", late last year. The DVD was shot at O2 Academy Brixton in September 2010. You can watch a clip from the DVD by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The tracklisting for "B3" is as follows:

"B3" "I Know You Want To Stop" "The Extra" "I.K.W.Y.L" "Time Is Money"

    I completely forgot about this band. After not listening to them in over 2 years, I don't see why I stopped in the first place. They're pretty good.
    Think this is gonna be good but different. Lyrically, they let go of the teen angst thing. Betcha the 4th track's called "I know why you lie"?
