Garbage released a video today for their latest song “No Horses.” The video is directed by Pancake Mountain creator Scott Stuckey. Pancake Mountain is a kid’s show on PBS that uses high profile musicians to teach children about music, science and language. You can check out Pancake Mountain here. “No Horses” was released last month and all profits from the single will be donated to the International Committee for the Red Cross through the end of 2018.

Scott Stuckey had this to say about his inspiration for the video, “It’s been my observation that when governments disregard their citizens for their own greed, the ensuing soundtrack usually kick’s ass. Like Nina Simone’s ‘Mississippi Goddam’ or the Clash’s ‘Straight To Hell’, ‘No Horses’ made me realize that I’m not going insane, these really are fucked up times. The lyrics are powerful so the challenge was to add something visually that wouldn’t ruin the individual’s interpretation.” The video uses religious symbology intercut with footage of protests, riots and images of mass consumerism.
Garbage also recently released an autobiographical coffee table book filled with never-before-seen photos of the band as well as prose pieces written by each of the four band members. The book is called THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE, and you can get your very own copy here.
Garbage is currently on tour with Blondie on the “Rage and Rapture Tour.” They played a sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl to a crowd of over 17,000 last month. The tour continues through the end of August. You can find tour dates and tickets here. Pick up a copy of Garbage’s latest Strange Little Birds on vinyl here.
