Garbage announces 20th Anniversary Edition of self-titled debut album

Garbage has announced they will release a special 20th Anniversary Edition of their critically acclaimed self-titled album in celebration of its historical debut. The new version will be remastered from the original analog tapes and feature all of the remixes and previously unreleased tracks from the lauded album.

CD and digital album configurations will be available for purchase on October 2nd. Fans who pre-order the Digital Super Deluxe Edition on iTunes will receive an instant download of the previously unreleased track “Subhuman (Supersize Mix)”. This track can also be streamed below.

Garbage will also be releasing a double vinyl LP available October 30th in Europe. A limited edition triple-vinyl LP with an autographed band photo is only available through the band’s website and will be shipped in time for a December holiday delivery.

“This is a very special occasion for all of us in garbage,” front woman Shirley Manson states. “We are particularly excited about the upcoming tour ­- the intent of which is pretty much the celebration of a 20 year long affair between us and those who have loved us.”

Garbage released their genre defying, groundbreaking debut on August 15, 1995 at a time when grunge music dominated the airwaves and mainstream culture. Their distinctive approach to songwriting and production – blending elements of rock, pop and electronic music – captured the attention of critics and fans all over the world. The album spawned multiple hits including: “Vow,” “Queer,” “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains.” It spent more than a year on both the U.S. and U.K. charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated for GRAMMY Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (“Stupid Girl”). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.

To celebrate 20 years as a band, this October Garbage will embark on a special U.S. and European Anniversary Tour. Christened the 20 Years Queer Tour, the band will play their debut album in its entirety for the first time. A full list of dates can be found below.

Tickets are available for purchase now. Torres will support on their U.S. dates and Dutch Uncles will support in Europe. The band will offer VIP experience packages for the U.S. tour through Adventures in Wonderland. Offers will include premium seating, sound check access, meet and greets, soundboard viewing, and exclusive merchandise.
