The Garden Band Controversy

The Garden Band was associated with many allegations and there were a lot of rumors going around.

The band has been involved in numerous issues as a result of its uniqueness and deviation from the norms of a band.

According to reports, the Garden’s first incident erupted in 2015, when they released their album Haha and were blacklisted by thousands of countries and radio stations, as well as receiving death threats.

There are also some rumors going around like “Cosmonauts dumped mustard on the band members during their set” and “Cherry Glazerr Band planed to capture ‘The Garden’ and lead them in the gas chamber“.

On July 21, 2020, another big scandal erupted when The Garden stated that they would be “breaking all ties with Burger Records forever,” following several allegations of sexual misconduct allegedly perpetrated by various Burger label artists.

The abstract visual effects and screen presentation have also attracted criticism and controversy from time to time.

Do you know what they say about criticism? That “Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing” and being and naming anything but what the garden band was precisely not was ‘nothing.’ So how can there be no controversy?
