All the way from Madison, Wisconsin, Garbage is Scottish singer Shirley Manson and guitarist, bassist and keyboardist Duke Erikson, guitarist and keyboardist Steve Marker, and drummer Butch Vig. Their seventh studio album, No Gods No Masters, was released in June 2021. "This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins," singer Shirley Manson explained, describing No Gods No Masters as "a critique of the rise of capitalist short-sightedness, racism, sexism and misogyny across the world."
