Garbage Goes Indie

GARBAGE GOES INDIE: Garbage is the latest rock band to forsake the major label system by launching its own label, STUNVOLUME, to self-release its new studio album later this spring. The album will be distributed by Fontana in the U.S. and around the world via licensing deals with Cooperive Music in Asia, Europe and Latin America; Liberator Music/The Mushroom Group in Australia and New Zealand; Sony in Japan and Universal Canada. The Shirley Manson-fronted band, featuring noted producer Butch Vig, has been in the studio finishing their fifth studio album, and first in seven years, recorded in a basement in Atwater Village, L.A., their first outside of Madison, WI. The band released their self-titled debut in 1995, which went double-platinum in the U.S., spawning the hit singles, “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains,” receiving a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Garbage’s last studio album was 2005’s Bleed Like Me, which debuted at #4 on the album chart. The band has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide. (1/23p)
