Placebo release their live album ‘Live At Angkor Wat’ today (December 12).
Available exclusively on iTunes, the album features their semi-acoustic show at 12th century temple Angkor Wat in Cambodia, recorded on December 7, 2008 at the start of their ‘Battle For The Sun’ tour. The trio were the first ever rock band to play the UNESCO world heritage site.
As well as nine tracks, the album download also includes a ten-page PDF art booklet, which features previously unseen photos from frontman Brian Molko‘s own collection.
Placebo have announced a one-off London show for spring next year. The trio, who have recently said that they will be recording the follow-up to their sixth album ‘Battle For The Sun’ during the coming months, will play London‘s O2 Indigo on April 28, 2012.
The band are playing the show as part of the 2012 Sundance Film and Music Festival, which takes place from April 26-29 at the O2.
The ‘Live At Angkor Wat’ tracklisting is:
‘Because I Want You’
