They have one of the most distinctive sounds-and images-in rock. Their most recent Polish gig was at the Heineken Open'er Festival in July this year where they delivered a standout performance. Now British band Placebo are coming back to give a concert at Warsaw's Torwar Arena Nov. 19.

Placebo consists of lead singer Brian Molko and guitarist Stefan Olsdal, who started the band in London back in 1994. Steve Forrest, who replaced their original percussionist Steve Hewitt in 2008, rounds out the current lineup.

Their eponymous debut album, released in 1996, was a major success, peaking at number five on the British albums charts and bringing them to the attention of David Bowie, who invited them to play at the French, Swiss and Italian legs of the international Outside Tour he was headlining with Nine Inch Nails.

Placebo's best known songs are "Nancy Boy," "Pure Morning," "Every You Every Me," "Infra-Red," and their version of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill." The band now has an output of six studio albums and has sold over 12 million records worldwide. Their latest album, Battle for the Sun, came out in June this year.
