Placebo Live In Kuala Lumpur

Placebo are an alternative rock band formed in London in 1994,and currently the band consists of Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Steve Forrest.To date, they have released six studio albums, six EPs and twenty-seven singles. The band have gained a considerable amount of international recognition,and have sold over one million albums in the UK and over ten million worldwide.

Placebo are best known for hit songs such as “Nancy Boy”, “Pure Morning”, “Every You Every Me”, “Infra-Red”, a cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill”, and “For What It’s Worth”. Their style has varied greatly.The band’s first album featured a raw sound and a fairly minimalistic instrumental lineup, but proceeding albums have had a slower, more melancholy,tone and they started experimenting with synthesisers and other,less traditional, forms of sound production (particularly after Black Market Music).

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 Elektrischer and uprising singing sensation, Ikwal.
