Placebo’s latest effort, Battle For the Sun, took the worldwide charts by storm last week, placing #51 on Billboard‘s Top 200 (their highest debut in the U.S.), #8 on the Top Independent Albums┬áChart, notching Top 10 bows in UK, Australia, and Sweden, and taking the #1 spot in France, Germany, and Switzerland. “For What It’s Worth,” the lead single off of Battle is also performing respectably on U.S. radio stations, such as king-maker KROQ and Seattle’s influential The End.

Battle For the Sun was released June 9th on Vagrant Records. Check our review of the album, which we found to be “defiant and luminously spirited,” right here.
