NEW ALBUM: GARBAGE | NO GODS NO MASTERS (LIMITED DELUXE EDITION)

More than a quarter of a century since the release of their self-titled debut, Garbage continues to maintain the band's distinct musical identity while making subtle deviations to their reputable electronic-rock template. Now, they are back with their new album "No Gods No Masters," the limited deluxe edition with a bonus disc of covers, most of which have been issued in the last eight years for Record Store Day. Manson said of the album: “It was our way of trying to make sense of how fucking nuts the world is and the astounding chaos we find ourselves in. It’s the record we felt that we had to make at this time.” Being the band's seventh studio album is more than just a number as it has meaning. Therefore it is not surprising that exactly this number forms a kind of common denominator for the album. Lyrically, the record builds on things like the seven virtues and the seven deadly sins. It is about twists and turns from capitalism and lust to loss and grief. "No Gods No Masters" takes time to embrace the listener with its wings of despair. Music is more than notes and words. Those are just tools to transport emotions, and Garbage is masters in transferring these feelings to the listener.
