Thanks so much for your patience as we’ve worked to add these back into our calendar. You’ll be contacted by the venue in the next couple of days on how to exchange your tickets or obtain a refund if you can no longer attend. There may also be a few additional tickets on sale after the refunds have been processed.
And, we have a few more west coast dates to add in the fall:
On May 31 GRAMMY-nominated rock band Garbage were the featured guests at 98.7-FM’s Penthouse, an exclusive concert series hosted by Los Angeles-based radio station KYSR-FM at the historic Hollywood Tower in Hollywood, Calif. Before an intimate crowd of radio contest winners, Garbage performed an acoustic set featuring the Billboard Hot 100 hit “Only Happy When It Rains,” “I Think I’m Paranoid,” “Vow,” and “Blood For Poppies,” a song from their most recent release, Not Your Kind Of People.
After a while, we really got beaten down by corporate expectations, and as a result, I think we all just wanted to buck against that. It was like a creative straitjacket. Because when you’re signed to a record label, you have to run all your music through them, and they decide whether they will release it or not. After a while, you just want to scream, and hand them some really obscure, weird, obtuse, unmarketable music, but then of course they’d never release it. I think taking a hiatus was our reaction against that. We wanted to free ourselves of that straitjacket. Then, of course, years passed, and you start to feel creative again, and get excited about the notion of getting into a room with people you love, and making music.
We made it. Our new album, the first in seven years, the first as our own record label, is now available all around the world for you to own.
It has been so wonderful to see so many new and old faces as we’ve started our tour–we’re so moved that you’ve stuck by us these years, and so happy that we can finally share this part of our adventure with you all.
You can pick up “Not Your Kind of People” at iTunes or visit our buy info page for other outlets in your region.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be premiering short films for each of the tracks off our new album, “Not Your Kind of People”.
Check out “Man on a Wire” and “Big Bright World” along with a full track of us playing “Battle in Me” live at rehearsal for our 2012 tour below. And subscribe to our YouTube channel to get the rest as soon as they roll out!
