Garbage to Preview New Album With Live Performance, MTV Hive to Stream Online
Alternative rockers Garbage are back on the music scene with a highly anticipated new album, Not Your Kind of People, set to drop this month. As part of their promotional blitz, the band will perform a live set in New York City on May 22 in front of their most diehard and loyal fans.
Didn’t get a ticket to the show? Not to worry. MTV Hive is set to livestream the concert from Webster Hall as part of its monthly Live in NYC series, and will make the full performance available for on-demand viewing the following week.
"So excited that MTV is filming our first show in NYC for more than seven years. It’s going to be a pretty special night for us,” lead singer Shirley Manson tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The gig sold out in 5 minutes flat so we know its going to be full of hardcore fans who have been waiting on our new record with unbelievable patience and overwhelming enthusiasm."
Not Your Kind of People is Garbage’s fifth studio album, coming more than seven years after their last release, 2005’s Bleed Like Me, which peaked at No. 4 on the U.S. charts. In 2007, the group released a compilation album titled Absolute Garbage.
“With our Live in NYC series, we strive to connect artists with their existing fans, as well as introduce them to a whole new fanbase,” said Jessica Robertson, Director of Content, MTV Hive. “We can think of no better band to spotlight than Garbage as they re-emerge for what’s guaranteed to be a very raucous and special show.”
Not Your Kind of People is scheduled to hit shelves on Tuesday, May 22.
