Garbage are back with their first new album in nearly a decade, and the band is very happy to reconnect with its fans -- but that doesn't mean singer Shirley Manson is going to stand for violence at shows, as one concertgoer found out after getting into an altercation with a fellow attendee on Friday, May 25.
Remember that episode of 'South Park' where Stan and Kyle find a guy frozen in a cave? Remember how he after he thaws out he's dumbfounded by 2003, so the boys house him in a 1996 habitat to preserve his sanity? From the sounds of 'Not Your Kind of People,' Shirley Manson and her Garbage gang must have been frozen in that same Colorado cave, because 'Not Your Kind of People' is stuck in '96.
Butch Vig has been a staple in the rock scene for decades, yet many do not know his name. The highly-sought producer and drummer for Garbage has always flown just below the radar with casual alt-rock listeners. Vig seems to be content with that as Garbage are ready to drop their first studio album in seven years.
Following their live chat at Ustream this afternoon (April 3), Garbage released the video for 'Blood for Poppies,' the leadoff single from 'Not Your Kind of People,' their first collection of all-new material since 2005's 'Bleed Like Me.' The album will be released on their own STUNVOLUME label on May 14.
