English band Placebo has confirmed that they will play a host of sideshows alongside their appearance at the 2014 Soundwave festival.

The band will kick off the sidewaves in Sydney¡¯s Enmore Theatre on Monday the 24th of February and then on to Melbourne¡¯s Palais Theatre on the 27th of February.

The English rockers are stoked to be coming back to Australia, with the group¡¯s drummer Steve Forrest telling Music Feeds late last year, that they cannot wait to come back.

¡°I cannot wait [for Soundwave 2014]. On the last world tour we did, Australia was by far my favorite place that I went,¡± said Forrest. ¡°Not to say the rest of the world wasn¡¯t amazing, it was, but Aussies, man, you guys have so much fun.¡±

The band is famous for its debut indie rock album ¡®Without You I¡¯m Nothing¡¯, which inspired a generation of indie rockers.

Tickets for Placebo¡¯s sideshows go on sale on Thursday the 23rd of January at 9am.
