Last year, veteran alt-rockers Garbage embarked on a tour with SIMGE favorites and NJ natives Screaming Females that resulted in the two bands making friends and working on a future collaboration. According to Garbage’s official site:
“This year we once again wanted to release something special in celebration of Record Store Day 2013. We decided to record the duet that we had been performing on tour with the Screaming Females towards the end of 2012. The SF flew across country from New Jersey to Los Angeles so we could record it all together at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood ; 2 drum kits, 2 bass rigs, 2 guitars, 2 microphones and 1 piano. No mean feat.
The song? A cover of Patti Smith’s “Because the Night”.
Why? Because it’s awesome.
The track will be featured on a limited edition 10” vinyl dropping Record Store Day 2013 . The 10” will also include a remix by Beatport contest winner Konstantin Kazhev titled “Automatic Systematic Habit Costa Cadeu Remix” and an additional Garbage original song titled “Love Like Suicide”.”
Ahead of Record Store Day, Garbage recorded a short video in honor of the event. Check it out below. The “Because The Night” single will be released as a part of this year’s Record Store Day which goes down on April 20th. Click here to find a local shop near you.
