Garbage are set to release Not Your Kind of People, their first studio album in seven years, on May 15th. The alt-rockers, who dominated rock radio in the mid-Nineties with hits such as "Only Happy When It Rains," "Queer" and "I Think I'm Paranoid" will issue the record on their own label, STUNVOLUME.

"We got together with no agenda other than to just jam a little bit, fuck around and see what we came up with, and it was inspiring," drummer and producer Butch Vig told Rolling Stone in October.  "I think you can hear some energy and a vibe in the tracks that sounds refreshing, a little bit more to me like the first two records." 

The band have not yet revealed details regarding a first single or a track listing for the record, but they do intend to head out on a world tour in support of the album. A handful of dates have been announced, but as of yet, they only include a few theater dates in England and Russia around the time of the album's release in May and a smattering of European festival gigs through the summer.
