It is rare when being a slacker pays off. In this particular case, if you have been meaning to purchase the latest Placebo album and just haven't gotten around to it yet, you are in luck. Virgin Records is re-releasing Meds, which was originally available last year via Astralwerks.
The new version of the album contains three songs previously unavailable, including "UNEEDMEMORETHANINEEDU," "Lazarus" and a cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill." The super-sized Meds will be available in stores on January 23. The band is also returning to the US this coming spring for another round of tour dates!
