Image Garbage have released the song, "Blood For Poppies", for free download on their website. The track comes from their upcoming release, Not Your Kind Of People. "Blood For Poppies" will also be released as a 7-inch on limited edition white vinyl with a remix done by drummer, Butch Vig. Lead singer, Shirley Manson, describes the inspiration behind the track:

'Blood For Poppies' is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream. The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary Restrepo. It's not literal in any sense whatsoever but it's a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity.

Not Your Kind Of People will be released May 15 on the band's label, STUNVOLUME. Pre-orders for the standard edition and the deluxe edition can be found here and here respectively.

In addition, Garbage have added dates to their previously announced tour. You can find those below.
