Garbage (US)



Sie sind wohl die beste Post-Grunge Band der Welt und haben mit Shirley Manson nicht nur eine wahre Sanges- sondern auch Wahnsinns-Stil-Ikone am Mikro. Schlagzeuger ist kein geringerer als Butch Vig, der schon Alben für Nirvana, Foo Fighters, The Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day und Sonic Youth (um nur ein paar zu nennen) aus dem Produktionsärmel geschüttelt hat. Sie sind wieder da, wunderbar, schon viel zu lange nicht mehr live gesehen!


LOS ANGELES, CA – MARCH 10, 2016 – Garbage (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) today announced Strange Little Birds, their sixth studio album, which will be released on June 10 th on the band’s own label STUNVOLUME. The band recently shared the title via Twitter, and today released the tracklisting and artwork. The album, produced by the band, is the follow up to 2012’s heralded Not Your Kind of People.  

Working initially in Vig’s basement and then at Red Razor Sounds in Los Angeles, Garbage drew on a variety of sources, from their recent fan letters back to the albums they loved growing up.   “The guiding principle was keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically”, said frontwoman Shirley Manson.   Strange Little Birds is “less fussed over” than anything Garbage has ever made. “We fell in love with immediacy,” adds Vig.  

Some will hear echoes of Garbage’s 1995 debut album in Strange Little Birds — including Manson herself. “To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records,” she says. “It’s getting back to that beginner’s headspace. In part, she says, that’s a result of not having anyone to answer to.”  

Garbage will perform at various festivals and headlining shows across Europe this summer. See below for confirmed dates and stay tuned for additional live dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
