Garbage turns 20 this year, and in order to properly celebrate, they will be touring the United States performing their self-titled debut album in its entirety for the first time. The 20 Years Queer Tour not only commemorates their anniversary, but also the giant success that their first album became. Guitarist Steve Marker said, “a big piece of our lives remains caught up in the making of that record, and we know it holds a special place for the fans that have kept us going for so long.”
Garbage was an album that defied popular trends in 1995 when grunge music was dominating mainstream music. The band’s approach to songwriting and production blends elements of rock, pop and electronic music. The album spent more than a year on both the US and UK charts, and was nominated for three Grammy Awards.
Garbage will make a stop in Austin while on their 20 Years Queer Tour. The band will play Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater on October 14. Tickets can be purchased here. Check out their tour announcement video below.
