Record Store Day Contest Winner!

The bathroom graffiti contest in honor of Record Store Day has come to a close!

We had lots of great submissions and could not choose just one winner…
Our TWO winners are Neil Curiel and Daniel Peoples!

They will each be receiving a t-shirt and poster from the Garbage webstore AND our new 10” vinyl release, Girls Talk coming out on Record Store Day (April 19th).

Thanks to everyone who made the effort to take part in this contest. Some of the submissions really made us laugh!

If you haven’t had a chance, check out all the other lovely submissions at at http://garbagegraffiti.tumblr.com/

Record Store Day GRAFFITI CONTEST

When we told our friend and legendary video director Sophie Muller about our upcoming duet with Brody Dalle for Record Store Day , she sent us over a brilliant photo she had taken of graffiti she had stumbled upon in a women’s toilet somewhere in London. We loved it so much we decided to use it for the 10” artwork. 

We hope it captures your imagination the same way it did ours because we would love to see more amazing, cool , funny or memorable graffiti that you fans might have discovered from all around the world. In the past you have inspired us so much with your creative output so we are starting a contest!!

Please send over a photo of your favorite graffiti (graffiti should already be in existence…PLEASE do not destroy private property for the sake of this contest!) and we will pick 1 winner who will win one 10” vinyl of “Girls Talk”, one poster and one t-shirt of their choosing from our official merch webstore.

We will start taking photo submissions today at http://garbagegraffiti.tumblr.com/ (simply click the SUBMIT button). When submitting, please include your email address in the caption section so we know where to reach you if you are the winner. We will post our favorite photos on http://garbagegraffiti.tumblr.com/ and on April 11th we will announce the winner.  

Oh…and we forgot to mention….the winner will receive their copy of “Girls Talk” before the official release date of April 19th (Record Store Day)….as in before everyone else in the entire world!

Thank you so much. And good luck.

"Because The Night" digital single

Due to Garbage and Screaming Females fans asking for a digital version of the cover we recorded of Bruce S and Patti Smith’s Because the Night especially for RSD , we have made it available in the US on ITUNES as from today.

"Because The Night" will be available INTERNATIONALLY on ITUNES starting MONDAY MAY 13th.

MAY 13th also marks the day that our 10” Record Store Day vinyl will FINALLY be available at indie record stores in the UK.

Check out the video below of our two bands recording the song at EastWest studios in LA earlier this year.

Marissa’s Guitar solo is not to be missed.

Urgent Record Store Day Update for UK fans

Calling ALL FANS in the UK ONLY!
We have just been informed that the companies involved with delivering and distributing our music in the UK have failed to deliver our 10” Limited Edition Vinyl to the UK Independent Record Stores as previously expected.

Therefore we wanted to let you all know IMMEDIATELY so you do not get bitterly disappointed tomorrow morning.

PLEASE NOTE: We have been told that the records will arrive and be on sale at the original outlets on MONDAY.
We have to take them on their word and assume this will indeed be the case.

We are so PISSED OFF and disappointed about this. And so sad that on Record Store Day in the UK our little jewel will not be available for sale.

Please accept our sincere apologies but the circumstances were WAY beyond our control.

Now you see why musicians lose their minds over the course of time and the music BUSINESS just continues to live up to it’s reputation.

Viva Mexico Contest Update!

As we’ve already mentioned, it was incredibly difficult to choose our winners for the Viva Mexico Contest. We wanted you to see just how difficult, so we’ve put all of the submissions up here for all of you to see. 

We also decided to make a video for our song “The One” with almost all of the images that we received. Check it out below.

Thanks again to everyone who participated. We love you and can’t wait to see you in Monterrey and Mexico City!

Garbage Viva Mexico Contest Winners

We truly have been amazed and moved by all the wonderful submissions we received from our awesome Mexican fans. We wish we could pick all of you as winners but unfortunately we can’t…so for those who did not win, we’re working on something special for you instead.

After much deliberation we were able to pick four favorite submissions for each show date.
But after additional deliberation, we found we simply could not narrow our favorites down to one winner in each city…so we’ll just have to stick to four winners in Monterrey and four winners in Mexico City!

And the winners are…..

Monterrey:

Carlos Moreno

Claudia Gomez Narvaez

Fernando Arredondo Ramirez

Morani Kornberg-Weiss


Mexico City:

Lucio Avila

Desiree Lucero

Jonatan Lopez Hernandez

Edgar Padilla Martinez 


These artists have each won a pair of tickets to our Monterrey or Mexico City show, a meet and greet with us (includes autographs, and photos), and a piece of Garbage merch of their choosing from our merch booths on show day.

Viva Mexico Garbage Contest!

We are so excited to come back to Mexico to play a show for our amazing fans in Monterrey and Mexico City (whom we haven’t seen in 8 years)!
This time we want to make it extra special…

Since we know you are all so talented, we would like for you to create a Garbage inspired piece of artwork based around one of the following two subjects: Frida Kahlo OR Day Of The Dead.
Your artwork can be a photograph, a painting, a drawing, a poem, a video, lyrics or a piece of music.

On April 12th we will post our 2 favorite pieces on our Facebook and Website!

The artists behind each piece will win a pair of tickets to our Monterrey or Mexico City show, a meet and greet with Garbage (includes autographs, and photos), and a piece of Garbage merch of your choosing from our merch booths on show day.* 

Please send all submissions by 10pm CST on Sunday, April 7th.
Submissions can be sent starting today to garbagemexicocontest@gmail.com

*Please include in the subject line either MONTERREY or MEXICO CITY based on which show you would prefer to attend.
Please note that we will not be able to provide any type of transportation to either show so bare this in mind when you submit your art.
Please keep all attachments under 2 MB.
