We are proud to announce the release on 31 October 2011 of the Placebo DVD and Blu-ray "We Come In Pieces". A Deluxe Edition DVD will also be available and includes a second disc containing the hour long documentary "Coming Up For Air" which follows Placebo around the world on their "Battle For The Sun" tour, and also includes the short film "Trigger Happy Hands". "We Come In Pieces" comes off the back of their hit album "Battle For The Sun" which reached number one in ten countries and was top ten in UK. The live concert "Battle For Brixton" features many of their hit tracks including "The Bitter End", "Nancy Boy", "Every You Every Me", "For What It's Worth", "Infra-Red", "Taste In Men" and many more.
This concert was filmed at London's Brixton Academy in September 2010 at the culmination of their world tour in support of the "Battle For The Sun" album released the previous year. The band played 143 shows to over 2.5 million fans in 44 countries.
