With a thirteen year history that takes in 5 studio albums, 10 million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success, Placebo are set to return with their first new album since the release of "Meds" in 2006. The new album titled "Battle For The Sun" was recorded over three months by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Bottrill (chosen by the band largely because of his work with Tool and Muse) and mixed by Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Lush, Blonde Redhead, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails). The result is a startling, alive, vital and boundary-vaulting record that marks a whole new era for a band that were in need of a change. Includes "For What It's Worth", "Ashtray Heart", "The Never Ending Why", "Bright Lights", "Battle For The Sun" and more. The new album was an instant #1 on Billboard's European Top 100 Albums chart - debuting at #1 in France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland and Top 10 in the U.K., U.S.A., Australia, Spain, Holland, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, Italy and New Zealand.
