Garbage returns from 7-year hiatus


With new album Not Your Kind Of People, Garbage’s unique sound is back, and back to basics. Released on May 14th through their own label STUNVOLUME (distribution in SEA by Love Da Records), this album smells freedom and youth, and that’s a pretty good omen after a 7-year break.
Watch their mind-blowing Buñuel style videoclip for first single “Blood For Poppies”, and read more about the band and Not Your Kind Of People below.

Garbage are to release their fifth studio album, Not Your Kind Of People in South-East Asia on May 14th, on the band’s label STUNVOLUME. The album will be distributed by Love Da Records. As V Magazine recently put it: “The poster girl for ’90s alternative rock is ready to reclaim her reign – and the radio – with a new record from her iconic band, Garbage.”

“Working with Garbage again was very instinctual,” said Duke Erikson. “Like getting on a bicycle…with three other people.” He adds “We haven’t felt this good about a Garbage record since the last one!”

Garbage – Shirley Manson (vocals), Steve Marker (guitars, keyboards), Duke Erikson (guitars, keyboards) and Butch Vig (drums, loops) – will hit the road this spring in support of the album by performing several headlining shows as well as various festivals throughout Europe and the U.S. with more dates to be confirmed.

“Thinking about going back on the road is both thrilling and terrifying in equal measure,” said Shirley Manson. “(…) but we’ve always enjoyed a little pain mixed in with our pleasure.”

After forming in Madison, WI, Garbage released their self-titled debut album in 1995 and rode a wave of visually arresting, female-fronted alternative rock bands. The album spawned the hit singles “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains” and was certified double platinum in Australia, the UK, and the US. The band won the Breakthrough Artist Award at the 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards, and was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy® Award. Their second album, Version 2.0, was released in 1998 and topped the charts in the UK. It was nominated for two Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Best Rock Album. 2001’s Beautiful Garbage was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 10 Albums Of The Year. In 2005, Garbage released Bleed Like Me, earning the band it’s highest chart position with a No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. In 2007, the band released a retrospective collection called Absolute Garbage. Garbage has sold over 12 million albums worldwide. They have performed in over 35 countries and will tour extensively worldwide in support of this new release.
