Garbage (Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig) have been together as a band for 25 years. After forming in Madison, Wisconsin, Garbage released their self-titled debut in 1995, going on to sell more than 4 million copies. The band’s unique sound and provocative visual aesthetic inspired massive worldwide attention and success. Their follow up album Version 2.0 was released in 1998 which also went on to sell over 4 million copies, topping charts all over the world and garnering multiple Grammy Award nominations, including Album Of The Year.
The band spent the next two years touring the world. They topped off their album campaign with the recording of the theme song for the James Bond movie “The World Is Not Enough.”
In 2001 Garbage released the platinum-selling beautifulgarbage, later followed by Bleed Like Me in 2005, the latter of which earned the band its highest chart position of No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart.
After a 7-year hiatus, the band released their fifth studio album Not Your Kind of People in 2012 on their own independently-run record label, STUNVOLUME. The album was named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 2012 and was hailed as the “alternative to everything,” by Pitchfork.
In 2015, the band celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut album Garbage with their sold-out “20 Years Queer” tour. Their most recent studio album, Strange Little Birds, released in 2016, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock and Alternative Albums chart and at No. 14 on the Billboard 200.
In 2017 they released their universally well-received book, This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake, shortly before embarking upon a Co-headline tour across North America with legendary post-punk band Blondie. They hit the road again in 2018, touring throughout Europe, North America and Mexico to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their beloved second record, Version 2.0. They will be spending most of the first half of 2019 in the studio, working on their as-yet untitled 7threcord.
