They are backing the U.S. release of their latest album, Black Market Music, which debuted at No. 4 on the U.K. charts last October.

The tour will touch down in 23 cities throughout North America including Detroit, Chicago, Edmonton, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, Hollywood, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia, New York City and Mexico City.

The jaunt will keep the hip hedonists on the left side of the Pond through at least May 29.

The trio has also added a handful of European dates – mostly festival appearances – after the North American outing, rolling out June 15 in Reykjavik, Iceland. Other new European gigs will include Athens, Greece, and Cadiz, Spain.

The band, fronted by androgynous Brian Molko, made its first big buzz in England with the release of its eponymous debut album in 1996 after touring with the Sex Pistols and Weezer. They had a U.K. hit with the single “Nancy Boy” and were invited to perform at David Bowie’s 50th birthday bash. Stateside success followed with the hit single “Pure Morning” and a winter ‘98 – ‘99 club tour that saw almost every show sell out.

Placebo is currently touring Europe with the Sneaker Pimps.
