This is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake

Garbage will release a coffee-table book full of artifacts, photos, and anecdotes that capture their long history: pages of lyrics with penciled-in edits, cocktail recipes - like one for 'Vodka With Anything' - and snapshots from a forgotten era where Manson wore her hair boy-short and platinum blonde." —The Cut/New York Magazine


Author Bio

Described by Pitchfork as the alternative to everything,"Garbage pioneered their wildly inventive fusion of pop, heavy guitars, and hip-hop and industrial textures more than two decades ago. Their 1994 debut album - recorded in Madison, Wisconsin, by Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig - made them one of the most acclaimed, adventurous, and best-selling bands of the nineties, and an international phenomenon: double platinum in the UK, US, and Australia, headlining festivals around the globe. Their six studio albums have collectively sold over fifteen million copies worldwide. In 2012, Garbage declared their independence by founding their own label, STUNVOLUME, allowing the band to chart their own course on their own terms. After a new album,Strange Little Birds, and an extensive tour in 2016, the band continues to define a future celebrating differences.This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake is their first book."
