Lead by a strong female singer, Shirley Manson, Garbage debuted in the 90s with a guitar based, electronic sound with a distinct sense of relatable pop songcraft. Garbage has garnered mutliple grammy noms and international acclaim and sold 17 million albums worldwide. They have a string of successful singles including ‘stupid’ and ‘Only happy when it rains’. After an extended haitus in the early 2000s, the band returned in 2010 and has since settled into veteran role of self-releasing rock-focused records. The band will be actively touring next year.
