Garbage Talk First New Album in Seven Years

Alt-rock purveyors Garbage are currently putting the finishing touches on their fifth studio album. The as-yet-untitled record, which will be the follow-up to 2005’s ‘Bleed Like Me,’ is being recorded in a basement in the Atwater Village area of Los Angeles, CA.

“Years-worth of pent-up music came out in some bizarre ways — bleary cell phone memos became real songs, conversations turned into lyrics, and new computer gizmos inspired wicked tangents,” said the band in a joint statement. “Ghosts came in, had their say. Everyone brought ideas, and everyone fought their corner. At the end of the day it all gets shoved through the four-way brain filter that is Garbage and it ends up sounding like nobody else. Red feathers and black tar.”

The new album is expected to drop next spring.
