Los Angeles, CA - August 20, 2012 - Garbage is premiering the video for their track "Big Bright World" today on VEVO. "Big Bright World" is the second European single off their #1 Alternative Rock debut and highly acclaimed album, Not Your Kind of People, which the band released on May 22, 2012 on their STUNVOLUME record label. Julie Orser, who has worked extensively with the band shooting various clips and behind the scenes footage over the last year, directed the "Big Bright World" video. Orser holds an MFA degree and her works have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world.
Since it's release, Garbage has been touring nonstop around the world. Fans and critics have been praising the bands return from a seven-year hiatus. "Temptress, lover, sufferer, scrapper - those have been Ms. Manson's personae since Garbage started in 1995. In other eras she might have been a pop torch singer, a soul belter or a new-wave frontwoman: a Shirley Bassey, a Dusty Springfield, a Chrissie Hynde. There's a little of each of them in her voice," said a recent live review from The New York Times. It went on to say "While pop has gone happily electronic, Garbage did the opposite onstage, where it was an unabashed hard-rock band. There were some electronic drumbeats mixed in, but Mr. Vig steamrollered over them with live muscle. The rest of the band - Duke Erikson and Steve Marker on guitars and, on this tour, Eric Avery on bass - plowed into the riffs." SPIN magazine declared, "Not Your Kind of People picks up from where the alt-'90s brooders left off. Sleaze. Gloom. Glam. Noise. Songs about beloved freaks and lying lovers. Grungy, trip-hop-addled pop designed to stoke the last dance at the end of days," and Rolling Stone magazine proclaimed "Manson and her three bandmates...create an unstable world where guitars and drums are altered and distorted until they're otherworldly."
Garbage will release a second single in the United States in the coming weeks, and will continue to tour playing various headlining gigs and radio festivals. A full list of dates is below.
