Veteran alt-rockers Garbage have revealed the release date for “Not Your Kind Of People,” their first album in seven years. “People,” Garbage’s fifth studio album, will hit stores on May 15 through the band’s own label, STUNVOLUME.
The band, best known for hits like “I Think I’m Paranoid” and “Only Happy When It Rains,” released “Bleed Like Me” in 2005 and subsequently went on an indefinite hiatus. Speaking with Billboard earlier this month, drummer Butch Vig expressed confidence in releasing “People” on the band’s own label and the new album’s direction after the long break.
“We got some offers from some majors, but at this point I feel it’s better for us to control exactly what we want to do and not have to deal with any other corporate decisions,” revealed Vig. “”We have an identity when the four of us make music together, and I think these days it’s good to have a strong identity.”
