British rockers Placebo are set to make Internet history with the launch of their new album Loud Like Love by live streaming an online Tv show around the world to celebrate its release.

The Teenage Angst stars have teamed up with bosses at YouTube and to become the first band to produce, curate and stream a global programme online, live from YouTube's London headquarters.

The 90-minute show, titled Loud Like Love Tv, will feature a performance and interviews with group frontman Brian Molko, guitarist Stefan Olsdal and drummer Steve Forrest, while they will also air behind-the-scenes video footage of their studio sessions and engage with fans via the Google Hangout video chat service.

The event will be broadcast on Placebo's official YouTube channel on 16 September (13) - the day of their album's release.
