Garbage, who released a new album, Strange Little Birds, last year via the band’s own label STUNVOLUME, have announced a new autobiographical coffee table book, This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake. It’s due out July 4 via Akashic Books. It includes never before seen photos of the band, along with pieces written by each of the band members (Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig). The book was written with former Rolling Stone journalist Jason Cohen. A special edition of the book comes with a 12-inch vinyl featuring previously unreleased live versions of the following ballads: “Milk,” “You Look So Fine,” “Cup of Coffee,” “Bleed Like Me,” “Beloved Freak,” and “Even Though Our Love Is Doomed.”

Manson had this to say about the book in a press release: “We were starting to forget what we wanted to remember. Twenty two years is a long time to keep track of the magic and the madness.”

The band are going on a joint headlining tour with Blondie and those dates are below, followed by Garbage’s video for “Magnetized.”
