Empty Meds Placebo tribute band since 2007
Placebo Tribute Band Official Website
Empty Meds Placebo Tribute entered a rehearsal studio for the very first time in march 2007. It is still hard to forget the first track they practiced together: the deeply emotional “Without you I'm Nothing”. They would have never imagined that day would have been the beginnig of a wonderful experience which is still going on nowadays. From just one track, played with the typical shame of a band performing together for the first time, to another song, and another one and so on, Empty Meds can count on a repertory of more than 40 songs.
From the more succesful tracks to the less known and rare ones and b-sides, their gigs (also performed unplugged, depending on the needs and the type of location) are characterised by the will to celebrate the greatness and the talent of a alternative band such as Placebo which, even if time goes by, is still on the edge and with an evergrowing fanbase.
“We are not Placebo and we don't demand to be them -as said by the band - our main goal is to let the audience have fun with songs which are not just covers, but re-interpreted creations with an easily recognizable and personal touch. We want to be more than just a tribute. That's why we always play songs that Placebo seem to have forgotten on their setlist.”
Empty Meds have been playing live since more than 5 years, in many different places in Italy and above all in Milan (their hometown), where they rocked the stage on the main alternative clubs of the city (Zoe, Black Hole, TNT, Legend 54). They also played in other cities like Rome, Vicenza, Padova, Bologna, Massa Carrara, Prato, Pavia and several times in Switzerland.
Their fanbase is still wide thanks to a costant presence on the main social networks, communities and forums dedicated to Placebo fans.
