It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from 1990s alternative rock group, Garbage. Known for classics “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy when It Rains,” Garbage has been taking a break since their 2005 release, Bleed Like Me, with members taking time off to pursue other interests. Now, the group is back, launching their own record label, STUNVOLUME, and self-releasing their upcoming Not Your Kind of People on May 15.
Their first album in seven years, Garbage’s Not Your Kind of People is currently being recorded in a basement in the Atwater Village area of Los Angeles, CA. The album is being produced by the group: drummer Butch Vig will be handling mixing, while vocalist Shirley Manson’s husband, Billy Bush, will handle engineering and mixing. Through STUNVOLUME the group will distribute their album via licensing deals with Cooperative Music, Liberator, Sony and Universal Canada.
The band’s return should be well-received: from being awarded the Breakthrough Artist Award at the 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards, to earning a number four chart position on the Billboard Top 200 with Bleed Like Me, Garbage’s upcoming release will hopefully serve as a statement that the group is back, and they are here to stay.
