Rock band Garbage will be performing their song “I Hate Love” on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show tonight at 11:35pm EST on NBC. The song comes from their latest album Not Your Kind Of People (review), which came out earlier this year and was the first all new Garbage album in over seven years. You can listen to the song below.
Talk about waking up to good news this morning! Garbage, the female-fronted alt-rock band that was ridiculously popular in the 90′s and early 00′s has announced that they will have reunited and will be releasing their fifth studio album sometime in Spring 2012! This will mark the first new album from the band in seven years (their 2007 release, Absolute Garbage, is a greatest hits record).
It’s been 4 years since Garbage released their last studio album, Bleed Like Me. Just after the Grammy’s, singer Shirley Manson teased via Facebook , “Guess who I just spent a week in the studio with?” Manson wrote, before adding, “Would you be pleased if I said one of them was called Steve and one of them was called Duke and another was a Grammy-winning producer?” Which leads the fans to assume she would be referring to her Garbage bandmates, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig. Vig is best known for his work as a Producer, having helmed Nirvana’s Nevermind and Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream.
Garbage broke onto the scene in 1995 with their self-titled debut which went Double Platinum (2 million) in the U.S. alone, going on to sell over 5 million worldwide. They had success with singles like “Only Happy When It Rains” and “Stupid Girl” as well as offering up an unreleased song “#1 Crush” to Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet in 1996. The band announced an indefinite hiatus in 2005 after the release of Bleed Like Me, saying they had not broken up but wanted to pursue other personal and creative interests. While Vig returned to producing, Manson worked on a solo album which has yet to see release. She has however started an acting career. In 2008 she appeared in the second and final season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as Catherine Weaver, a T-1001 Terminator.
