The follow-up to 2013's Loud Like Love from will arrive next year.
UK '90s legends Placebo have announced their first album in eight years, Never Let Me Go.
The record will be available for pre-sale on November 9, which if fans purchase, they'll have access to another pre-sale for gigs on their upcoming UK and European tour.
Full dates have not been shared yet, but likely will be announced by the time the pre-sale is available.
If Placebo were to play in Ireland on tour, it would be their first gig in the country since their show at the 3Arena in 2016.
Hot Press were there to see the show for themselves and you can check out photos from that gig here.
Speaking about their new record in a recent interview, frontman Brian Molko said that they had already finished the album before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
"We had a lot of get-up-and-go, and then everything that happened, happened, so everything is sort of delayed by about two years now," he said.
"I know it was frustrating for the fans. It was certainly very frustrating for us as well, the interminable wait to put out new music, but at least it was there. We knew we had it."
The last album from the band behind hits such as 'Nancy Boy' and 'Pure Morning' was 2013's Loud Like Love.
It reached No.18 on the Irish album charts and featured singles such as 'Too Many Friends' and 'A Million Little Pieces'.
