Placebo’s sixth studio album, Battle for the Sun, was released on June 8th 2009. Recorded over three months at Metal Works Studios in Toronto with producer David Bottrill and mixed in London by My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails supremo Alan Moulder, Battle for the Sun is a startling, alive, vital and boundary-vaulting Placebo record.
Due to their penchant for androgynous attire/makeup and raw guitar riffs, Placebo have been described by some as a glam version of Nirvana. The multi-national band was formed by singer/guitarist Brian Molko (part Scottish and American, but raised in Britain) and bassist Stefan Olsdal (originally from Sweden).
Earlier, both had attended the same school in Luxembourg, but didn’t cross paths properly until 1994 in London, England.
In spring 2003, Placebo showcased a harder edge with the release of their fourth album, Sleeping with Ghosts. The album went Top Ten in the U.K. and sold 1.4 million copies worldwide. Last year, the band made another mark by becoming “Best Alternative” winners at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2009.
Placebo will be joined by local performances from Twilight Action Girl (TAG), DJ Hackeem Hacker and uprising singing sensation, Ikwal.
