Garbage Returning to the Studio Early Next Year

By December 17, 2012

Follow me on:

One of the happiest surprises of the year was Not Your Kind of People, the comeback album from the recently reunited Garbage. Though it didn't have a major impact on rock radio, the album suggested that the quartet led by Shirley Manson still had plenty of gas left in the tank, spurring hopes that it wouldn't be a one-off. Well, we got our wish: It appears that some sort of follow-up may arrive next year.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, the band's drummer, producer Butch Vig, said, "We're gonna do some recording in January, early February." What that means, though, is a little less certain. As Manson explains, "Historically, we've worked slow because we've toured so much -- we go and spend a year making a record, then we go back out on the road. Now we realize we can do two or three tracks, release these tracks and then go on the road." So it's unclear if the band members are thinking about doing just an EP or focusing on a full-length, but what is definite is that they'll be touring in February and March across New Zealand and Australia.

After that, maybe there will be more time to work on new material? In the Rolling Stone piece, Manson hints that more U.S. dates will be on the horizon, so your guess is as good as mine. But considering that it had been seven years between Garbage albums, a little waiting isn't the worst thing in the world.
