Black Numbers is excited to announce they will release the sophomore LP from Placeholder (Harrisburg, PA). The album, entitled I Don’t Need Forgiveness, will see an official release in September of 2013 on the Jersey City label. The LP was recorded earlier this year and engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth). It follows up Placeholder’s 2012 EP, Thought I Would Have Been Somebody By Now, which can be downloaded on Bandcamp.

Placeholder originally formed under the moniker Coastal in March 2011. After playing together in various bands in the past, the band quickly bonded and began writing/recording. The band’s first demo/EP, Demonstration, was released in the Summer of 2011. Placeholder quickly entered the studio in the Fall to record their debut full-length. Titled Nothing Is Pure, and released in December of 2011, Placeholder made a giant splash on their proper debut. Staying busy, the band followed their debut LP up with the 2012 EP, Thought I Would Have Been Somebody By Now, once again delivering on the promise of their earlier releases. The band strikes a chord with their heavy and melodic brand of songwriting. Playing emotionally intense post-hardcore, Placeholder echo modern bands such as Balance & Composure and Polar Bear Club while paying homage to their past influences. Mature, focused and full of determination, Placeholder leave quite the impression.

The band has some upcoming tour dates including a five day run with Such Gold and Turnover.
