You’ll be contacted by the venue in the next couple of days on how to exchange your tickets or obtain a refund if you can no longer attend. There may also be a few additional tickets on sale after the refunds have been processed.
And, we have a few more west coast dates to add in the fall:
We made it. Our new album, the first in seven years, the first as our own record label, is now available all around the world for you to own.

“BLOOD FOR POPPIES” TO BE THE FIRST SINGLE FROM GARBAGE’S NOT YOUR KIND OF PEOPLE
NEW ALBUM TO BE RELEASED IN TWO CONFIGURATIONS ON MAY 15, 2012
BAND UNVEILS TRACKLISTING, ALBUM ART AND MORE TOUR DATES
LOS ANGELES, CA – March 8, 2012 – Garbage – Shirley Manson (vocals), Steve Marker (guitars, keyboards), Duke Erikson (guitars, keyboards) and Butch Vig (drums, loops) – announced that “Blood For Poppies” would be the first single from their upcoming studio album, Not Your Kind Of People, due out on May 15, 2012 on the band’s STUNVOLUME record label.
“The song is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream,” said Shirley Manson. “The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary ‘Restrepo.’ It’s not literal in any sense whatsoever but it’s a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity.”
The video for “Blood For Poppies” was recently shot in Los Angeles by renowned fashion photographer and filmmaker Matt Irwin. Additionally, the band filmed a video that they posted to their social media revealing the tracklisting for Not Your Kind Of People:
Not Your Kind Of People will be released in both a standard and a deluxe configuration. Fans can preorder either version on Amazon now: Standard and Deluxe

It’s coming up to the 14th of February. Being that we have a new song called “I Hate Love” and having been blown away with the artistic efforts made by you all for the Garbage Cover Contest we decided we would like to see your love-hating artistic creations - paintings, drawings, photos inspired by this event. However, unlike the Garbage Cover Contest which was not run by Garbage, this is an official request by us.
Please submit your lovely works of art to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10pm PST Friday, February 10th and we’ll incorporate them into something special that we’ll reveal on the dreaded day itself….. Valentine’s Day.
*Please keep file size to 2MB and under.
UPDATE: Submission deadline has passed, stay tuned tomorrow for the finished project!
We’ve added a second live show in Los Angeles at the El Rey for the evening of April 9.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday, February 11 at 10am PST on Ticketmaster. There will be a 2 ticket limit per person and the entire show will be forced will call–meaning you will need to present your credit card and ID to pick up your tickets the night of the show, then you and your guest will immediately enter the venue.
We have put these ticket buying measures into place so as to protect as many real garbage fans as possible. We want our fans be able to get tickets for as reasonable a price as possible. NOT the scalpers. Unfortunately we don’t have a solution to the scalper problem but these measures should help protect our fans.
But remember……….these measures don’t guarantee you a ticket! We have not played in 7 years and as a result our shows are selling very fast.
Tickets for our London and Paris gigs are officially SOLD OUT.
Los Angeles pre-sale tickets have sold out, but general sale will recommence at 10am PST tomorrow.
Some of you have expressed concerns about how quickly the Los Angeles pre-sale tickets disappeared. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about the scalpers right now. We are so sad and sorry that this goes on and we’re working with our touring partners on how to fix this problem going forward and to make sure this and future gigs can be filled with as many fans as possible.
We are adding more live dates over the coming weeks and months, so keep a eye here for more opportunities to see us this summer.
