Garbage are to release their fifth studio album, “Not Your Kind Of People” in the UK on May 14th, on the band’s label STUNVOLUME. The album will be licensed by Cooperative Music. 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 playing the Troxy in London on May 9th and several other headline shows and 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.”
