Garbage released its self-titled debut album Aug. 15, 1995.  Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig are planning to give the LP its first ever start-to-finish performance on the upcoming tour.

“Garbage was born out of such unusual elements and unusual circumstances, and we were shocked when the first record became such a success,” said guitarist Marker.  “We’re just as surprised to be here now, intact, so many years later, enthusiastically preparing to get back on the road with that album and all its attendant b-sides and lord knows what else.  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.  We can’t wait.  This tour is going to be a blast.”

Garbage will issue a special 20th anniversary edition of the band’s debut album.  The package includes a remastered version of the disc plus all of the remixes along with unreleased versions of the songs on the LP.
