Alt-Rock Band Garbage Wind Up East Coast Tour Plus Playing ADOTG Concert Series This November

In celebration of their acclaimed sixth studio album, Strange Little Birds, Alt-rock pioneers Garbage return to Australia this November, marking their first Australian shows since 2013 and first Wollongong show in 17 years. The band will bring their world-renowned live rock shows to venues in Melbourne, Wollongong and Sydney.

Garbage drew on a variety of influences including the albums they loved growing up, to create Strange Little Birds, their first album in four years. Upon its June release, the album landed at No. 9 on the ARIA Album Chart and picked up acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, The A.V. Club, NME and Spin amongst countless respected critics:

"20-plus years after forming, each band member is still fired up to mine new sounds and approaches for inspiration. That willingness to be uncomfortable and look beneath the surface makes Strange Little Birds a rousing success." – The A.V. Club

"The electronic rockers return with a sixth studio album as cool and caustic as their 1995 debut" – NME

"Garbage haven’t released an album this immediate, melodically strong and thematically interesting since their self-titled 1995 debut." – Mojo

"5 Stars" – Renowned For Sound

All eleven tracks on Strange Little Birds were recorded and produced by the band (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig). They even performed a powerful two-song performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in support of the album’s release.

From their lauded self-titled debut (1995) through to Strange Little Birds, Garbage’s innovation, unique sound and provocative visual appeal have inspired massive worldwide attention and success. Tracks like ‘I Think I’m Paranoid’, ‘Only Happy When It Rains’, ‘When I Grow Up’, ‘Stupid Girl’ and ‘Cherry Lips’ are instant classics and highlight the band’s talent to span genres and styles while maintaining their celebrated sound.

Joined by Melbourne’s own Tiny Little Houses as special guests, Garbage will play Melbourne and Sydney with Olympia on the Sydney show. The Temper Trap and Tash Sultana will be the special guests for the Wollongong show.

In addition, Garbage will also play a series of A Day On The Green (ADOTG) outdoor concerts with The Temper Trap, The Preatures, Tash Sultana and Adalita.

Garbage have sold 12 million albums worldwide, performed in over 35 countries and continue to perform sold out shows across the globe more than two decades since their formation.

Strange Little Birds is out now via Liberator Music/Stunvolume Records.

These shows will be Australian fans’ first chance to hear songs from Garbage's latest album live alongside favourites from the band’s hit-filled career. With anticipation for this tour at fever pitch, tickets will definitely sell out, so don’t miss out!
