LOS ANGELES, CA - April 2, 2012 - Garbage today announced that the music video for the group’s new single “Blood For Poppies” will premiere tomorrow, April 3rd on AOL Music. “Blood For Poppies” is the first single from the band’s highly anticipated album Not Your Kind Of People, which is due out on May 15th on the band’s own STUNVOLUME record label.


On April 3rd at 1:00pm PST, Garbage will participate in a live Ustream chat where the band will answer questions from fans about the video and forthcoming new album, followed by the world premiere of the video live from Los Angeles.


The “Blood For Poppies” music video was shot in Los Angeles and directed by renowned fashion photographer and filmmaker Matt Irwin and inspired by visual artists like Magritte, Maya Deren, Luis Brunel and Francesca Woodman. “We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn’t want the shoot to end,” said the band’s Shirley Manson.


Not Your Kind Of People will be released in both a standard and a deluxe configuration. Fans can preorder either version here: Standard Edition Preorder and Deluxe Edition Preorder (featuring four additional tracks).  On April 21st for Record Store Day, Garbage will release “Blood For Poppies” on a limited edition, white vinyl 7-inch that will feature the track and an exclusive remix by drummer Butch Vig.


Garbage will hit the road this spring in support of the album by performing several headlining shows in the United States as well as various festivals throughout Europe with more dates to be announced over the coming weeks. In addition, the group will perform at the recently announced KROQ Weenie Roast on May 5th in Los Angeles. Full list of dates can be found below.
