Garbage Share Title Track Of New Album 'No Gods No Masters'

Thursday, 29 April 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

Garbage have shared the title track of their new album.

'No Gods No Masters' is due out on June 11, and its eponymous single is an expansive alt-rock offering with a hard-hitting message. Vocalist Shirley Manson explained:

“I tried to make sense of the world, I was trying to make sense of left and right, literally. Like why do some people vote right? Why do some people vote left? And all of that comes from a concern for ourselves, for our friends, for our families, ultimately, for our babies. I was really inspired by going to Chile. I went to Santiago during the protests there, which were profoundly moving. We were driving down the street, and the whole city was covered in graffiti, like all the old museums and palaces. And I was shocked. The beautiful people that I was with said, ‘But why are you so shocked? We’re protesting human lives and you're more shocked that property and buildings and monuments have been hurt here. And, in fact, human beings are being hurt, and this is what you must focus on.’ That was like a slap in the face.”

This made the singer think about the confederate statues being toppled in the US: “All these people, they have more value than a monument to slave traders, but they don't have more value in the consciousness of society, and I think it's devilish and obscene, and I want power to be dismantled, and a society re-imagined. So, this song is about re-imagining our society for the future, for our children and not making the same mistakes over and over again and allowing greed to corrupt our thinking.”

In between supporting Blondie on their UK arena tour, Garbage have lined up a headlne show at the O2 Academy Bournemouth on November 17. They will also open for Alanis Morissette on her North American tour this summer.

Garbage Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Wed November 17 2021 - BOURNEMOUTH O2 Academy Bournemouth
