Today, Garbage shared a dark new song, "No Horses." The experimental-sounding track is filled with diverse noise loops, creating a neurotic basis for which frontwoman Shirley Manson layered her vocals over. The song has drawn comparisons to Patti Smith lyrically, and many fans have found resonance in it amidst the world's current political environment. Why are there no horses? Well, it appears that in the apocalyptic setting of Garbage's new song, the authorities have killed them all for a lack of usefulness.
In addition to last year's feature length album Strange Little Birds, Garbage have also recently released a coffee table style autobiographical-style book called This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake via Akashic Books. The work was penned by Rolling Stone veteran Jason Cohen, and featured never before seen photos and writings personally done by each bandmate. The special edition also came with a 12" vinyl of previously unheard live tracks. The band are currently scheduled to do a selection of book signing events across the summer, taking place at various small booksellers and record stores across the country. Fans attending a signing will be able to pick up the book for their collection, as well as connect with Garbage.
1990s legends Garbage are soon to hit the road, alongside 1970s icons Blondie, for the co-headlining Rage and Rapture tour, which kicks off this week. Fans can pick up tickets to the July 16 Greenwood Village, CO show or the Aug. 2 Philadelphia show right here on AXS.
