Fresh off their sixth studio album Strange Little Birds, Garbage have announced a new book about their career. This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake was co-written with music journalist Jason Cohen and is due out July 4, 2017, according to publisher Akashic Books.

The book takes its title from a line in Garbage’s Version 2.0 song “Push It,” and will feature a coffee table-book layout with rare photos of the band and essays from each member.

“We decided it was time for our fans to hear directly from us and get a look into our official archives, which at this point is immense and somewhat overwhelming,” lead singer Shirley Manson said in a statement. While you’re waiting on that release date, check out the book’s cover art and revisit “Push It” below.
