Last month Garbage announced their first concert dates of 2012. Today they have updated their official website at Garbage.com with a whole new look, a bit of new information and the revelation of the band’s upcoming new album. Now, the album title reveal is a bit of a game … if you head over to Garbage.com, you will see the album title in scrambled letters. The band wants you to decipher the album title and enter for a chance to win free concert tickets to the band’s upcoming tour. If you click below, you will see the album title deciphered along with a very cool new promo image, message from the band and information about the band’s own record label.

Ahhh!! So cool! At this point, we do not know when the new Garbage album will be released … but we do know that it will be released on the band’s own record label StunVolume Records:
Garbage are set to release their fifth studio album in the spring. The album, which is their first since 2005′s ‘Bleed Like Me’, will be released on the band’s own record label Stunvolume … Recorded in Atwater Village in Los Angeles, the album is the group’s first not to be recorded in Madison, Wisconsin, the city where the band formed in 1994. The album will be produced by Garbage and mixed by the band’s drummer Butch Vig. Garbage are set to embark on an ‘extensive’ tour to support the new album … Singer Shirley Manson also revealed that the band had rough mixes of 24 songs, with working titles of the tracks including ‘Time Will Destroy Everything’, ‘Blood For Poppies’, ‘Automatic Systematic Habit’, ‘Control’, ‘Lies, Lies, Lies’, ‘Sugar’, ‘Not Your Kind Of People’, ‘TROUBLE’, ‘Felt’, ‘Big Brite World’, ‘Alone’ and ‘Animal’.
As you can see, the song Not Your Kind of People is also the title of the new album. I suspect with the relaunch of Garbage.com, we will very soon be getting more information about when we will be hearing new music from the band. I am DYING of anticipation, you have no idea. Head over to Garbage.com to check out all the goodies the band is offering right now … and stay tuned, hopefully we’ll be HEARING something exciting and new very soon!
