Garbage Not Splitting Just Yet
Garbage have hit back at rumours that their current Australian dates would be their last. Issuing a statement to the press, the band claim they have “overextended themselves” and need some time away from the public eye.
As reported last month, Garbage have pulled out of next month's UK and European tour prompting rumours that the band are about to split.
However, in a new statement on the band's website, the Anglo-American four-piece have confirmed the band are just taking a break.
"After reading all the bullshit out there about the future of Garbage, we felt compelled to write a few lines here to address the issue and set the record straight.
"The truth of the matter is really simple and surprisingly hard to misconstrue. For more than ten years, we have been in a cycle of album-making and touring and for the first time in our history, we have made a decision to break that cycle and take some time off. What does that mean? We are NOT breaking up.
"However, we ARE taking some much-deserved time off to spend with our families and friends. How much time? We don't know.
"This decision came as a difficult yet necessary one in order to preserve something we hold very dear. The last ten years have been an incredible experience for all of us and we appreciate all the freedom, love and support you have so generously given us during that time.
"We are eternally grateful to you all and we look forward to the next chapter in all of our lives with great excitement and enthusiasm."
The final show on the Australian leg is set for October 1 in Perth.
