Garbage will release an expansive, career-spanning 35-track compilation titled Anthology next month.

The album will emerge on October 28 via BMG/Stunvolume.

In a statement accompanying the news, vocalist Shirley Manson says, “This anthology is testimony to almost three decades of creative work together, our collective tenacity and our terrifying ability as a group to withstand ritual humiliation on a regular basis.

“Regardless of the inevitable shifts and tides within the music industry, we are surprised to find ourselves still here, making records and touring the globe. It is in no small part as a result of the astounding fan support we receive.

“Our love and gratitude to all, for everything.”
