Garbage have shared the video for their song “No Horses.” The Scott Stuckey-directed clip is a barrage of images reflecting political and social unrest, blind consumerism, and war. Between it all is a robed Shirley Manson literally washing the feet of the elite — who happen to be her bandmates.

According to the video’s description, “All of Garbage’s profits from sales and streams of ‘No Horses’ will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018.”

“It’s been my observation that when governments disregard their citizens for their own greed, the ensuing soundtrack usually kick’s ass,” Scott said of the song and it’s accompanying visuals. “Like Nina Simone’s ‘Mississippi Goddam’ or the Clash’s ‘Straight To Hell’, ‘No Horses’ made me realize that I’m not going insane, these really are fucked up times. The lyrics are powerful so the challenge was to add something visually that wouldn’t ruin the individual’s interpretation.”

Garbage are currently on their co-headlining Rage and Rapture tour with Blondie—see the full dates below. Their last album was 2016’s Strange Little Birds.
