New Music From Garbage

This year we once again wanted to release something special in celebration of Record Store Day 2013. We decided to record the duet that we had been performing on tour with the Screaming Females towards the end of 2012. The SF flew across country from New Jersey to Los Angeles so we could record it all together at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood ;  2 drum kits, 2 bass rigs, 2 guitars, 2 microphones and 1 piano. No mean feat.

The song? A cover of Patti Smith’s “Because the Night”. 
Why? Because it’s awesome.

The track will be featured on a limited edition 10” vinyl dropping Record Store Day 2013 . The 10” will also include a remix by Beatport contest winner Konstantin Kazhev titled “Automatic Systematic Habit Costa Cadeu Remix” and an additional Garbage original song titled “Love Like Suicide”.

In case you missed it, check out this short video we made in honor of Record Store Day 2013.
Don’t forget to support your local record store on April 20th!

Tour Update

By now we’re sure you’ve heard that Mr. Eric Avery has been invited to join ranks with NIN on their recently announced world tour, and will therefore be leaving us as our resident touring bass player at the end of our upcoming North American dates.  As sad as we are to see Eric go, we are all incredibly excited for him. We think the world of NIN and we think the world of Eric.

"I Think I’m Paranoid" Contest Winner

The band has voted and the results are in… the winner of the “I Think I’m Paranoid” t-shirt contest is:
Steve’s favorite design, created by Dom Bloink!

Dom will see her design go into production, receive the final finished t-shirt, an autographed limited edition 7” of her choosing, and a phone call from any band member she would like.

Congratulations Dom!
And thanks again to everyone for blowing us away with all the truly amazing submissions.



"I Think I’m Paranoid" T-shirt Contest, Top 4

It has been close to impossible…but we’ve narrowed down our pool of finalists to just four!

We’ll spend the weekend deliberating on which design will take the grand prize and on Monday we will announce who will see their design go into production, receive the final finished t shirt, an autographed limited edition 7” of their choosing, and a phone call from any band member they would like.

I Think I’m Paranoid T-shirt Contest Update:


Look at all of your amazing submissions!
As you can imagine it has been nearly impossible for us to choose one winner…so we’ve decided to push back our official announcement date by a few days.
Today we bring you each band member’s favorite submissions.
Tomorrow we will announce each band member’s pick for winner.
Monday we will announce our official contest winner.
We want to emphasize that this has been really difficult and even if you didn’t make it into the short list, that doesn’t mean your design wasn’t fantastic or that it failed in anyway. There never is a question of one thing being “better” than another where art is concerned. These designs just happened to appeal most to each of us on this particular day.
Thanks to everyone who submitted!!
