    British trio Placebo is releasing a retrospective EP titled Extended Play '07 to familiarize the American audience with their hits.

    Nevertheless, Placebo comes to North America touring on the Projekt Revolution bill alongside Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday. The angst-fueled line-up begins touring in Chula Vista, CA on July 31 and ends on September 3 in Greenwood Village, CO.
