A Russian punk band recently freed from a jail in their country will perform at the Barclays Center next month.

Human Rights group Amnesty International announced Tuesday that the group will perform at their "Bringing Human Rights Home" concert on February 5.

Pussy Riot garnered worldwide attention in 2012 when they were jailed for publicly criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin inside a church.

They were freed a month ago.

Since then, the band says they've been working to improve conditions for prisoners in the Russian penal colony system,

The Flaming Lips, Imagine Dragons and Lauryn Hill are also set to perform at the concert.
