Garbage's seventh studio album, No Gods No Masters, will be released on June 11th. The record’s debut single “The Men Who Rule the World” and its accompanying mixed media video are out now.
Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson said, “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 how fu**ing nuts the world is and the astounding chaos we find ourselves in. It’s the record we felt that we had to make at this time.”
Garbage members Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig got together in Palm Springs, CA along with long-time collaborator Billy Bush, in the summer of 2018 to sketch out the skeleton of the album over two weeks. They then took those demos and went their separate ways before connecting in Los Angeles to finish the record.
