Album drops June 11th
Multi-platinum rockers Garbage have announced they will release their seventh studio album No Gods No Masters on CD and LP on June 11th via Stunvolume/Infectious Music. The group will also release a deluxe CD and digital version of No Gods No Masters featuring covers of classic tracks by David Bowie, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen along with rare Garbage originals. The deluxe version features performances from Screaming Females, Brody Dalle, Brian Aubert, John Doe and Exene Cervenka.
Recently released, the album’s opening track and debut single “The Men Who Rule the World,” is a clear statement of intent from a band who still believe in the power of dissent, setting the tone for the rest of the record.
“This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins,” says the band’s iconic frontwoman Shirley Manson. “It was our way of trying to make sense of how fucking nuts the world is and the astounding chaos we find ourselves in. It’s the record we felt that we had to make at this time.”
Produced by Garbage and long-time collaborator Billy Bush, the seeds for No Gods No Masters were planted in summer 2018 in the desert in Palm Springs. The quartet — Manson and bandmates Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig – convened at a home belonging to one of Marker’s relatives and sketched out the skeleton of the album over two weeks, jamming, experimenting and feeling the songs out. They then took those demos and went their separate ways before connecting in Los Angeles to finish the record.
Since releasing their eponymous debut album in 1995, Garbage has blazed a unique sonic trail, garnering critical acclaim and seven Grammy nominations along the way to 17 million albums sold.
