Garbage album and European tour news

Garbage has announced their fifth studio album, Not Your Kind Of People, will be released in America on May 15, on the band's label STUNVOLUME.  

"Working with Garbage again was very instinctual," said member 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."
