Last summer, only a year after releasing their album Strange Little Birds, Garbage shared a brand new song. “No Horses” was our first taste of where their next record is going, and one of five songs they’d already started. In August, drummer Butch Vig predicted that the next album would come out in summer 2018 – that’s in addition to an anticipated rerelease of their 1998 album, Version 2.0. Though it’s been quiet since then, in the past month Garbage has been back in the studio recording album #7!
It started right around January 25th, when they shared a shot of Butch Vig working on new music:
We didn’t get a second post until February 5th:
In the last week, Garbage has been even busier in the studio! Since President’s Day, the band has been working away on new tunes.
Garbage is still in the early stages. Writing, demoing, and recording will likely take several months. Though an album could come out later this year, it may be 2019 before we get it. In the meantime, you can enjoy their latest single; buy “No Horses” on iTunes or stream the song on Spotify now. All profits from sales and streaming of this song will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018.
The band also just released an incredible biography. Be sure to pick up their book, This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake.
What else can you buy? Concert tickets! Garbage will be touring in celebration of Version 2.0 this September. They already announced European dates, so grab your tickets before it’s too late! Everyone in the rest of the world will have to wait for more tour announcements soon.
2018 is set to be an exciting year for Garbage fans. With 20 Years Paranoid and a brand new album in the works, we have plenty to look forward to! Keep checking back here for all the latest Garbage news.
