Butch Vig has claimed Garbage's five-year hiatus gave the band the chance to "clear any excess baggage out of [our] head space".

The drummer and producer confirmed to Billboard.com that the band are planning to self-release their new album – their first new studio material since 2005's 'Bleed Like Me' – in spring 2012.

Vig said:

We're out of all our corporate responsibilities from the past, and initially we thought that was terrifying but now we think it's liberating. We're going to put the record out on our own label and just figure out how to licence it and market it because we want it under our control.



Speaking about how the record is likely to sound, he added: "There's lots of elements of things we've always loved: noisy guitars, big electronic beats, atmospheric film moments. [We] wanted to make a record that sounded like something that we want to hear when we're driving the car."

Last month, singer Shirley Manson revealed that the band had rough mixes of 24 songs, with working titles of the tracks including 'Time Will Destroy Everything', 'Blood For Poppies', 'Automatic Systematic Habit', 'Control', 'Lies, Lies, Lies', 'Sugar', 'Not Your Kind Of People', 'TROUBLE', 'Felt', 'Big Brite World', 'Alone' and 'Animal'.

She added that the album was set to be the "best collection of songs of our career".
