Garbage to Host Live Chat, Premiere ‘Blood for Poppies’ Video Today
Fancy a chat with Garbage? How about a look at the new video from their first album in seven years? Well, today is your lucky day.
Garbage are teaming up with AOL Music to premiere the video for ‘Blood for Poppies,’ the leadoff single from their upcoming album ‘Not Your Kind of People,’ and to make things a little more special, they’ll also be hosting a live Ustream chat where they’ll answer questions about their new music. (Fingers crossed that it turns out better than the last high-profile live chat we read about in the news).
It’ll all go down at 1 PM PT (that’s 4 PM for fans on the East Coast), with the chat taking place before the world premiere of the video. Which would seem to make it a little harder to ask the band questions about the clip, but hey, they’re the talent. We just work here.
As for what you can expect to see in the ‘Blood for Poppies’ video, the band says it was “inspired by visual artists like Magritte, Maya Deren, Luis Brunel and Francesca Woodman.” Or, as Garbage vocalist Shirley Manson put it, “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.”
