Placebo to release new live DVD
Watch an exclusive clip from 'We Come In Pieces'
This live recording of their 1999 single 'Every You Every Me' was filmed at the band’s London O2 Academy Brixton show in September 2010, which will be available in full on the DVD, released on October 31. This clip was chosen to be shared following a poll the band recently ran on their Facebook page.
The Two-Disc Deluxe Edition and Blu-ray versions of the DVD also come with a documentary, Coming Up For Air, shot and directed by Charlie Targett-Adams.
Placebo's drummer Steve Forrest told NME:
There are a lot of really intense moments [on the DVD documentary]. There was a bit where I had a really big breakdown at the end of the tour. We decided to leave it in, since it shows a lot of the realness of what we went through. The sad and dark shit show people what it’s really like on tour. But there are also the good times, when we’re a family and having fun. It shows both sides of it. People want to see what's really going on, so we’re happy to show them that. There are a lot of really intimate moments in there that you wouldn’t normally see.
Forrest also discussed the title, We Come In Pieces, saying: "If I know Brian, I’m guessing it’s something to do with showing the realness of leaving your life for an amount of time and everything you’re going through. It’s sort of like everyone falls apart at some point in the tour, but then we all come back together towards the end. I think it’s something like that. I could be way off, though. Brian could say it has something to do with the darkness of the world."
All DVD pre-orders from placeboworld.firebrandlive.com come with three bonus live tracks from the O2 Academy Brixton show.
