Garbage Split RubbishSeptember 23rd 2005

Despite rumors of the band's demise, Garbage isn't heading to the trash heap just yet.

On Wednesday, lead singer Shirley Manson told the Melbourne Herald Sun that the alternarockers planned to take "an indefinite break" after the band finished its two-week Australian trek Oct. 1. Earlier in the week, the band canceled a European tour that had been slated to begin after the Down Under dates.

"We're taking a hiatus," Manson told the paper before adding ominously, "I don't know if we're calling it a day."

Those comments fueled rampant speculation that the band behind such hits as "Stupid Girl," "Special," and "Only Happy When It Rains" would ever get back together.

But by Thursday, Manson was backtracking.

"We have discussed this and I don't think anybody is interested in breaking up," she told Australia's National Nine News. "We feel that this has been a really great tour and we feel that we have really muscled through and produced a great record, and we just want to take some time off while things are really good between us."
