Garbage Announce "Indefinite Hiatus"
September 21, 2005

When Garbage announced recently that their European tour dates were being cancelled and their current trek would end in Australia, rumors immediately began that the band was breaking up. Now singer Shirley Manson confirms that while the band is not officially breaking up, they will be taking an indefinite break.

Manson told the Australian Herald Sun, "We always swore if it wasn't 100 percent fun we'd stop it. So that's what we've decided to do. It was important for us to say 'we're tired, this is becoming hard, we should stop right now'. It's something we all felt was the right move. We discussed it in an adult fashion over dinner one day and since then a burden has been lifted from everybody and our live shows have been incredible."

Garbage released their fourth album, Bleed Like Me, back in the spring, and the tensions within the band during its recording were well documented. However, Manson says that there is no animosity between herself and band mates Butch Vig, Steve Marker and Duke Erikson.

She told the Herald Sun, "Things feel really positive in the band, which makes it a good time to take a break. We just feel we've reached the end of our tether in terms of our touring cycle. I'm tired and I feel my life is out of control to a certain degree. I just need to get home. The rest of the band feels the same. As the life of a band continues you start to reassess your life and the role music plays in it."

Manson adds that Garbage is not calling it quits forever. "I don't think we feel Garbage will ever be completely over. It's part of our lives, we still all get on well and love each other. We're taking a hiatus, I don't know if we're calling it a day." She adds that while she will likely pursue a solo career eventually, "I don't think I'll ever make music with another band."

Garbage's final show is set for Perth, Australia on October 1.
