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 U.S. and U.K. charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated forGRAMMY Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (“Stupid Girl”). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.
To celebrate 20 years as a band, this October Garbage will embark on a special U.S. and European Anniversary Tour. Christened the 20 Years Queer Tour, the band will play their debut album in its entirety for the first time. For full tour info and ticket links click here.
