The Tipping Point, is Tears for Fears’ first album in 17 years, due out in Feb 2022, and Garbage have their seventh album, No Gods No Masters, out back in June 2021.
“We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again.

Roland Orzabal added, “The Tipping Point has been a long time in the making, and we are looking forward to playing our favorites from the new album as well as our classics from throughout the years.”

The album also hit number 1 on the Billboard 200 and went multi-platinum in both the UK and the US. The Tipping Point, will be Tears for Fears’ seventh studio album.
Garbage is singer Shirley Manson, and guitarist, bassist, and keyboardist Duke Erikson, guitarist and keyboardist Steve Marker, and drummer Butch Vig. Their seventh studio album, No Gods No Masters, was released in June 2021. "This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins," singer Shirley Manson explained, describing No Gods No Masters as "a critique of the rise of capitalist short-sightedness, racism, sexism and misogyny across the world."
