With the acquisition of the Virgin/Famous catalogues, BMG Rights Management acquired the rights for one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the UK, Placebo. Placebo has sold over 12 million albums worldwide, headlined festivals all over the world and are about to undertake an 18 month worldwide touring campaign with their brand new album "Loud Like Love" . You might know them best by their hits The Bitter End, Meds, Too Many Friends, Loud like Love and Every You Every Me. The Bitter End even has the most youtube views of all their songs. The English alternative rock band was formed in London in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal. Later they were joined by drummer Robert Schultzberg who was later on replaced by Steve Hewitt, and in 2007 Steve Forrest was their newest addition as the drummer. Placebo’s self-titled debut album, released in 1996, which was a surprise hit in the UK, the singles ‘Nancy Boy’ and ‘Teenage Angst’ charted in the UK Top 40. MTV embraced the album’s leadoff single, ‘Pure Morning’, which led to the group’s breakthrough in the U.S. In 1998 Placebo’s second album Without You I’m Nothing was another large seller in England.
