Garbage – Cities in Dust


In 2022, Garbage started writing for their upcoming eighth studio album. In October, after fulfilling their touring obligations, Garbage resumed writing for the album. In February 2023, Garbage announced their Summer 2023 co-headline North American tour with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds featuring Metric as special guests. On April 22, 2023 Garbage will release the four-song 12″ Witness to Your Love EP as a vinyl exclusive Record Store Day release featuring “Witness to Your Love” backed by an unreleased cover of “Cities in Dust“, originally by Siouxsie and the Banshees, and two outtakes from the No Gods No Masters sessions, “Blue Betty” and “Adam and Eve”.

In May 2023, longtime touring and recording bass guitarist Eric Avery left the band to commit to a reunited Jane’s Addiction. Regarding his departure, the band posted: “Thought I should let you all know that our most beloved touring bassist Eric Avery has rejoined his own band Jane’s Addiction and so will no longer be blessing us with his immense talent and sweet disposition. We are all genuinely happy for Eric as this course of action, this band of his, is where his heart lies and always has. Unfortunately for us it is an enormous, immeasurable loss. He has always been such a joy to work with. We will all miss him more than I have the words to express.”
