Garbage are out with the music video to their new single ‘Blood For Poppies’, off the Madison, Wisconsin alternative rock band’s fifth studio album ‘Not Your Kind of People’, out May 15th on Fontana. The Matt Irwin directed video was shot during February in Los Angeles.

“We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn’t want the shoot to end,” singer Shirley Manson told Live4Ever.

Garbage Deny Breakup Talk


Garbage posted a message to fans in response to a report that said they were taking an indefinite “hiatus” after their tour ends. The band’s message states:

After reading all the bullsh** out there about the future of Garbage, we felt compelled to write a few lines here to address the issue and set the record straight.

Certain journalists have taken the liberty of running wildly inaccurate stories in recent days about our so called ‘break-up’. Made up out of cobbled together,out of context quotes to feed some perverse agenda of their own,these stories are nothing more than idle speculation and are completely inaccurate.

The truth of the matter is really simple and surprisingly hard to misconstrue. For more than ten years, we have been in a cycle of album-making and touring and for the first time in our history, we have made a decision to break that cycle and take some time off. What does that mean? We are NOT breaking up. However, we ARE taking some much-deserved time off to spend with our families and friends. How much time? We don’t know.

This decision came as a difficult yet necessary one in order to preserve something we hold very dear. The last ten years have been an incredible experience for all of us and we appreciate all the freedom, love and support you have so generously given us during that time. We are eternally grateful to you all and we look forward to the next chapter in all of our lives with great excitement and enthusiasm.

True Love Forever, Garbage.

Garbage Heading On Indefinite Hiatus After Tour

The Herald Sun caught up with Garbage singer Shirley Manson, who confirmed the group will take an indefinite “hiatus” after the tour ends. “We’ve not stopped for 10 years,” Manson said in Melbourne on Tuesday (September 20). “We always swore if it wasn’t 100 percent fun we’d stop it. So that’s what we’ve decided to do. It was important for us to say ‘we’re tired, this is becoming hard, we should stop right now’. It’s something we all felt was the right move. We discussed it in an adult fashion over dinner one day and since then a burden has been lifted from everybody and our live shows have been incredible.” The full story at has since been removed.

Shirley Manson On Pressures Caused By Cute Pop Stars

Garbage recently played at the Pacific Amphitheatre in California, and singer Shirley Manson noticed some cute young women not normally attending a Garbage show. “I want to thank you for being here instead of at a fu**ing Jessica Simpson show,” Manson told the ladies. “Now, I may not be as young or cute, but I am a lot smarter and, I guarantee you, I’m a much better shag!” The singer explained her comments to Australia’s Time off magazine, saying it was nothing against Simpson or other pop stars like her. “But what are young girls thinking when they turn on the TV and all the performers have perfect teeth, slim, muscular beautiful bodies, perfect smiles and big t*ts,” she asked. “Where are the voices for those girls who don’t conform to that ideal? These cute girls up front looked very ‘Middle America’. Usually our fans are more… fu**ed up [laughs]. I was very surprised and touched to see them. I think it was indignation that made me spout off about the women who changed my life by encouraging me to do certain things. I wonder if the American pop girls of today are empowering, like my heroes. Or do they send the message to young girls that they are worthless because they’re not blonde or blue-eyed?”
