Garbage have returned.
Last night (3.4.12) the band premiered their new video for ‘Blood For Poppies’. Shot in Los Angeles and directed by renowned fashion photographer and filmmaker Matt Irwin, the video is inspired by visual artists like Magritte, Maya Deren, Luis Brunel and Francesca Woodman. “We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn’t want the shoot to end,” said the band’s Shirley Manson. ‘Blood For Poppies’ will be released as a special edition red 7″ at this years Record Store Day (April 21st), alongside forthcoming new UK single, ‘Battle In Me’.
