(Classic Rock) Garbage realised it was time to end their seven-year break after band friends lost a young son to cancer, says mainman Butch Vig.

The genre-crossing outfit fronted by Shirley Manson have released Not Your Kind of People on their own label. And Vig says the decision to get back to work was made in a "profound moment".

He tells ExploreMusic: "A friend of ours, a couple, lost their son to cancer. It was a horrible tragedy. Shirley and I wrote a song for a tribute album to raise money for children's cancer. Shirley sang at the funeral. I think we realised how important music is in our lives, and we had unfinished business.

"A day or two after that Shirley called Duke and Steve. A couple of weeks later we were in the studio recording."
