“Placebo at their breathtaking, irresistible best.” - Mojo

Placebo are also set to return to the main stage of the Reading/Leeds Festivals this August, and make a headline appearance at Rockness Festival, Scotland, on June 14th


With a thirteen year history that takes in five studio albums, ten million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success, ‘Battle For The Sun’ is Placebo’s first new album since the release of ‘Meds’ in 2006.


Recorded over three months by producer Dave Bottrill in his Toronto studio (chosen by the band largely because of his work with Tool) and mixed in London by My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails supremo Alan Moulder, Placebo’s sixth album is a startling, alive, vital and boundary-vaulting record that marks a whole new era for a band.

Placebo have announced the release of their brand new single, “For What It’s Worth” on June 1st. This will be the first single to be taken from their upcoming album “Battle For The Sun”, (released on June 8th) and was given its exclusive play in the UK on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show on April 20th.



The single will be available in three formats - 7”, CD and Digital Download, featuring a cover of Nick Kershaw’s “Wouldn’t It Be Good” as the B-side. The single track will be made available to fans in the UK exclusively on iTunes following its first play on Zane Lowe.



With a thirteen year history that takes in five studio albums, ten million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success, Placebo are still brimming with new ideas. ‘For What It’s Worth’ embodies the urgency, optimism and colour that characterises the new album.



This summer sees the band headlining festivals across Europe, including:



Rock Werchter in Belgium, Poland’s Heineken Open’er Festival, the Arras Festival in France, Sweden’s Siesta Festival, Paleo and Moon & Stars Festivals both in Switzerland, Rockwave Festival in Greece, Sziget Festival in Hungary, Pinkpop in Holland, Spain’s Bilbao Live, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany, Norway’s Quart Festival and Provinssirock in Finland, touring a six-piece band including a violinist.
