Garbage – 20 Years Queer
Garbage was born out of such unusual elements and unusual circumstances, and we were shocked when the first record became such a success. We’re just as surprised to be here now, intact, so many years later, enthusiastically preparing to get back on the road with that album and all its attendant b-sides and lord knows what else. A big piece of our lives remains caught up in the making of that record, and we know it holds a special place for the fans that have kept us going for so long. We can’t wait. This tour is going to be a blast. – STEVE MARKER
Garbage released their genre defying, groundbreaking debut on August 15, 1995 at a time when grunge music dominated the airwaves and mainstream culture. Their distinctive approach to songwriting and production, blending elements of rock, pop and electronic music, captured the attention of critics and fans all over the world. The album spawned multiple hits including: Vow, Queer, Stupid Girl and Only Happy When It Rains. It spent more than a year on both the US and UK charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated for three Grammy awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (Stupid Girl). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.
Later this summer, Garbage will release a special 20th Anniversary edition of the album that will be re-mastered and feature all of the remixes and previously unreleased versions of songs from their debut.
