Garbage Releases Blood For Poppies Music Video
After taking a break from the spotlight for five years Shirley Manson and the guys of Garbage have returned with a newly released music video to accompany their single 'Blood for Poppies'. The artistic scenes were directed by Matt Erwin.
Garbage just recently debuted the music video on UStream chat and also answered questions about the clip where they are seen “hopping around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealistic dream,” according to Ace Showbiz.
While talking about the video Shirley Manson shared the inspiration behind ‘Blood for Poppies’. “The inspiration came from a story I had read in the Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary 'Restrepo'. It's not literal in any sense whatsoever but it's a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity."
Garbage also recalled the production process for the video. “We piled into a transit van with a ridiculously talented team of Matt Erwin and Aaron Brown. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn't want the shoot to end.”
‘Blood For Poppies’ will appear on the band's upcoming album entitled ‘Not Your Kind of People’. Their latest studio efforts will hit shelves on the 15th of May. In the meantime Garbage will kick off a slew of cross-country performances starting April 9th. Watch the video below.
