Reunited alt-rockers Garbage and rising New Jersey rock trio Screaming Females toured together last year, and on several occasions, the two bands shared the stage to cover Patti Smith’s “Because The Night”. Now, they’re releasing a studio version of their cover for Record Store Day (April 20th).
Their recording session at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood was documented in black-and-white film by director Sophie Mueller and shows the fierce dynamic between the two groups, especially the frontwomen: Garbage’s Shirley Manson and Females’ Marissa Paternoster. Below, watch the ladies trade impassioned lines and Paternoster absolutely shred her guitar solo.
“Because the Night” will be released as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl.
