Garbage return with their seventh studio album ‘No Gods No Masters’, to be released 11th June 2021

“This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content.

The seven virtues

The seven sorrows

and the seven deadly sins.

It was our way of trying to make sense of the craziness of the world and the astounding chaos we found ourselves in.”

Shirley Manson


New music video was released today:


I wasn't sure about the song at first but it has got better after few listens. Good song. The reason for that kind of video is probably that the band couldn't film a proper music video because of covid. Version 2.0 is my favorite Garbage album but I have liked the last 2 albums too. Not You Kind of People from 2012 was great.

Personally I liked Strange Little Birds better. But all their albums have good stuff on them.

This song from the new album is not bad, not bad at all.

When they put this on the MGS V Phantom Pain Soundtrack!

The MGSV trailer with that song is one of my favorite trailers. That album is so good:

This song from the new album is not bad, not bad at all.
I like SLB too but I haven't listened it as much as other albums. My favorite songs on it are Night Drive Loneliness and Even Though Our Love Is Doomed.

Don't know if you're a Depeche Mode fan but but when this trailer came out, I didn't realize it was them, on the trailer for MG Rising Revengeance. I figured it out a year later after the games release.

I prefer the old school Garbage, the new song is too erratic and noisy for lack of a better description. I understand that's by intention for the subject matter in the song and tone but it's not clean like their old stuff.

This experimental sound is fun. Jagged and different while staying recognizable due to Shirley's vocals. Not like Garbage is all that unique outside her anyhow. Good to see them stretch. I like the video and the Metropolis theme "For her -- all seven deadly sins!". A UFO. There's a pulse on pulse theme.
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

I throw my garbage straight in the trash.


Musically, not your kind of people was pretty good, but lyrically if brought me back to the "heady" emo days of the 90s where it was all so deep. Bleed like me even moreso, with less interesting music. Iduno

Shame. I was excited at first.

They are touring later this year but I have a feeling that covid may delay it again. I hope they come to Finland.

This is my favorite Garbage song:

Not a bad track, chorus is catchy. Don't see the point of the lyrics though, seems tryhard-woke.

Is she blaming men on the lock-down? She's a bit old now for that nonsense.

Reminds me of music that was released in the mid 2000's. Both the song style and music video...

Yea not a fan of this...

The song has really grown on me. I have been listening it a lot on Spotify. It might not be as good first single as Empty but its still very catchy. I recommend reading the band's autobiography This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake. Its a great book:

New music video was just released:

This is better than the first song. I pre-ordered the 2 disc version few weeks ago.

I just noticed that version in the music video is radio edit. Spotify has a version that is one minute longer.

Holy crap just tried to listen to the Men song it sounds like a dry heave. Just an incomplete vomit. Not even Garbage.

Second song is very lame. I can’t believe people take this stuff seriously. This corporate revolution stuff is the fakest shit ever.

Butch Vig said in the live chat before the music video premiered that they have almost finished compiling the b-sides and remixes for the BG reissue. I haven't heard all the b-sides so good that they re-release the albums with them. Bleed Like Me needs to be release on vinyl too.

This concert from 2005 is great:

pretty bland. The video reminds me of the "edgy" stuff I would see at my art school back in the early 2000's.

The new song doesn't feel as good as the previous two but I need to listen it more. The album gets released next month. Can't wait to hear it! :)

It looks like the band is rehearsing for the tour. Virtual concert would be great.

I have listened the album few times and its very good. I got lucky and it arrived one day early. My favorite songs right now Uncomfortably Me and This City Will Kill You. I'm so happy they included the bonus disc. It has the great song Time Will Destory Everything that they used as a intro on Not Your Kind of People tour.

They performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers:

Haven't received my physical copy yet but it's on streaming services, so no biggie. I cannot fathom why they released The Men Who Ruled the World as the first single, as it's definitely the weakest song on the album. The rest is very good!

I have started to like it and Wolves more. TMWRTW definitely in my top 5 favorite songs on the album.

Their Starman cover is great:

Listened the album once but honestly, not impressed. My first impression was that as brilliant Shirley is, she is getting too much space in this one making it feel like a solo album. In other words, it doesn't sound liķe Garbage, more like "some band".

Also the lyrics to Men Who... are embarrassingly childish and generalizing without her usual sense of nuances and wit. It doesn't feel sincere, maybe? That's at least how it comes out to me.

Granted, I probably need to listen it at least once more (2nd time right now, Wolves playing). But Strange Little Birds this is not. Probably wasn't their intention either.

Yeah, I don't care for it either. The music is pretty generic compared to what I think Garbage actually is. And the B side is actually more interesting, sad.

Butch Vig said in an interview at Pitchfork that this time around they didn't have anything ready when they got together. Usually he has ideas and stuff ready even before they start. This time he didn't, they just put together from jam sessions. I think you can hear that.
