Placebo have revealed that they will return to the studio in 2012 to start work on a new album.

The band, whose last album was 2009’s ‘Battle For The Sun’, admitted that they are 'still recovering' from the promotion and touring schedule of the last album.

Speaking to, bassist Stefan Olsdal has said that the band will need "a bit of a breather" but plan to start writing and recording for a new record next year.

“The shape and sound of the next album will be decided when we get back together,” said Olsdal. “I suppose once we came off the road it was kind of hard to plug in a distorted guitar again, because we'd done that every night for the best part of two years. When we came back home it was nice to hear nice, clean, acoustic sounds, so maybe we'll still feel that way when we start to [record the album]."
