Record Store day happens on April 20th. You can find out more at recordstoreday.com and recordstoreday.co.uk.

From the bands official Facebook profile:
This year we once again wanted to release something special in celebration of Record Store Day 2013. We decided to record the duet that we had been performing on tour with the Screaming Females towards the end of 2012. The SF flew across country from New Jersey to Los Angeles so we could record it all together at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood ; 2 drum kits, 2 bass rigs, 2 guitars, 2 microphones and 1 piano. No mean feat.

The song? A cover of Patti Smith’s “Because the Night”.
Why? Because it’s awesome.

The track will be featured on a limited edition 10″ vinyl dropping Record Store Day 2013 . The 10″ will also include a remix by Beatport contest winner Konstantin Kazhev titled “Automatic Systematic Habit Costa Cadeu Remix” and an additional Garbage original song titled “Love Like Suicide”.
