In February, Garbage finished preliminary work on their next album. Despite drummer Butch Vig’s hopes of a summer 2018 release, in a recent interview with Consequence of Sound’s Kyle Meredith, frontwoman Shirley Manson affirmed that album #7 will be out in 2019. In addition to celebrating the 20th anniversary of the sophomore album, Version 2.0, the band also have clear plans to record the next album! This month, the band was in Palm Springs working on the 7th record. Shirley faithfully kept fans in the loop on the studio progress with plenty of behind-the-scenes photos.
First is a one-off from March:
This week, the band was hard at work once again:
Update 5/26: Garbage re-entered the studio a month later and shared a handful of studio pics from the week:
Garbage is still in the early stages of making this next album. Writing, demoing, and recording will likely take several months. However, sometime in 2019 we’ll get to hear it! In the meantime, you can enjoy Garbage’s latest single. Last summer, “No Horses” was our first taste of where their next record is going, and one of five songs they’d already started. You can buy “No Horses” on iTunes or stream the song on Spotify now. Furthermore, 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 last year, so be sure to pick up their book, This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake.
If you’re looking for more to collect, be sure pick up some concert tickets! Garbage will be touring in celebration of Version 2.0 this September. They previously announced European dates and just added North American ones, too, so grab your tickets before it’s too late! US tour announcements should be coming soon.
And of course, you’ll want to pre-order the Version 2.0 reissue, due out June 22nd!
The next year is going to be exciting for Garbage fans. With 20 Years Paranoid and a plans for a brand new album, we have plenty to look forward to! Keep checking back here for all the latest Garbage news.
