Garbage are set to release their fifth studio album in the spring.

The album, which is their first since 2005's 'Bleed Like Me', will be released on the band's own record label Stunvolume, which was launched today (January 23).

Recorded in Atwater Village in Los Angeles, the album is the group's first not to be recorded in Madison, Wisconsin, the city where the band formed in 1994. The album will be produced by Garbage and mixed by the band's drummer Butch Vig.

Garbage are set to embark on an 'extensive' tour to support the new album, which is as yet, untitled.

Last year Butch Vig claimed Garbage's five-year hiatus gave the band the chance to "clear any excess baggage out of [our] headspace". Speaking about how the record is likely to sound, he said: "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."

Singer Shirley Manson also 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'.
