PLACEBO SHARE COVER OF CLASSIC TEARS FOR FEARS’ SINGLE “SHOUT”
Placebo have released a cover of the iconic Tears For Fears single, “Shout” (https://lnk.to/Placebo-Shout)
In this latest Placebo interpretation, “Shout” becomes a brooding industrial march. Given that the single’s original songwriter Roland Orzabal has said that “Shout” concerns itself with political protest, it also makes for a fitting follow-on from Placebo’s latest album release Never Let Me Go, which marked itself out with commentary on tech-saturation, rising intolerance and the climate crisis.
Placebo recently announced a postponement of their North American tour dates, with rescheduled performances for 2023 to be announced soon.

Placebo formed in 1994, with the London-based pair of Brian Molko (vocals/guitar) and Stefan Olsdal (bass/guitar), releasing their eponymous debut just two years later. In the intervening years, Placebo have released eight studio albums, that have sold over 13 million copies, filled stadiums from Moscow to Sydney, won numerous awards including a 1999 Brit Award, and pushed the boundaries of gender and sexuality.
