Garbage reveal plans for new album, club tour
Garbage have revealed plans for a tour in support of their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Not Your Kind Of People. The recently reunited rockers will hit the road this spring for an intimate club tour that stops at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, May 26. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $35.
Not Your Kind Of People, Garbage’s fifth studio album and first since 2005’s Bleed Like Me, will hit stores on May 15. The new album mark’s the end to Garbage’s lengthy hiatus as ordinal members Shirley Manson (vocals), Steve Marker (guitars, keyboards), Duke Erikson (guitars, keyboards) and Butch Vig (drums, loops) reunited to work on new material in 2010. “Blood For Poppies” will serve as the album’s lead single.
“The song is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream,” said lead singer Shirley Manson in a press release. “The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary ‘Restrepo.’ It’s not literal in any sense whatsoever but it’s a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity.”
The video for “Blood For Poppies” was recently shot in Los Angeles by renowned fashion photographer and filmmaker Matt Irwin. Additionally, the band filmed a video revealing the track listing for Not Your Kind Of People, which is can be viewed below.
During the band’s hiatus, Manson made her professional acting debut as a series regular on “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”. Vig remained active in the music world and earned high praise for producing albums by the likes of Green Day, Foo Fighters, and Jimmy Eat World.
