Garbage fans! It’s time to rejoice! For a legion of fans (including me) who’ve grown up listening to Shirley Manson and the boys belt out alternative-rock classics like ‘Stupid Girl‘, ‘Special‘ and ‘Only Happy When It Rains‘, things just couldn’t get any better. I’ve been harping on the fact that 2012 is the year of comebacks, and Garbage has just confirmed that they’re the latest band to jump on the comeback-bandwagon. And the world, just like that, seems to be a better place once again. Sanity prevails.
7 years after their last album ‘Bleed Like Me‘ debuted at a career high # 4 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart in 2005, Garbage has released their new single ‘Blood For Poppies‘ on their website, along with the incredible news that their 5th studio album ‘Not Your Kind Of People‘ will be released on May 17th. The song is classic Garbage, with heavy guitar riffs and Shirley’s flawless power-vocals triumphantly marking a return to form for the band.
Is there anything better than a new Garbage single? Yes there is! The fact that ‘Blood For Poppies‘ is available for free on the official website for the band! Go get your copy immediately before they’re all gone, I already got mine!
