Placebo launch mildly different album with London gig

Having only done an ordinary version, a Limited Edition, and a Deluxe Edition, Placebo are convinced there's still a market for slightly rejigged versions of Battle For The Sun. So prepare yourself for the Redux Version.

No, I'm not sure either. "New and re-worked tracks" it says here.

Anyway, in a bid to pick the interest in the record, there's going to be a one-off headline gig at the Brixton Academy on September 27th. Tickets on sale to "fans" from Wednesday; if few enough fans snap them up, non-fans will be able to buy them from Friday. Although why a non-fan would want to go, I'm not clear. Perhaps it would be to boo?
