BUSH are back with new single ahead of album release in May
TORONTO, ON., March 4, 2020– Britain’s Gavin Rossdale and the boys have released their first single since 2017 ahead of the announcement that they will be dropping a new album in May entitled “Kingdom.”
The single is called “Flowers On A Grave” and is available on YouTube and all streaming platforms as of today, March 4th. Its sound holds true to that dirty grunge Bush sound that fans have come to know and love. You can listen to it right here:
“We are really proud of The Kingdom,” Rossdale said in a statement. “It’s as if all roads travelled over the last few years have gotten us to this point. We look forward to this cycle — old fans, new fans, likeminded people who are searching for their kingdom.”
Of course with a new album well on its way, it only makes sense that Bush will also hit the road. They will be touring with Theory Of A Deadman and Breaking Benjamin this April throughout Australia and Europe before heading stateside in mid-July. So far there has been no Toronto date announced but they will play Darien Lake, NY on July 24 and Syracuse on August 8.
Canadian fans may remember Bush in their early 90s heyday when they went under the moniker of Bush X from 1992-1997, because Canadian rocker Domeninc Troiano with his 70s band owned the rights to the name here. In 1997, the popular British grunge band were given permission by Troiano to drop the X in exchange for a $20,000 donation to the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund.
Bush are Gavin Rossdale – vocals/guitar Chris Traynor – guitar Corey Britz – bass Robin Goodridge – drums. Their 1994 debut album Sixteen Stone recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and went 6 times platinum selling over 20 million records worldwide.
More popular in North America than in their homeland, because of their close ties to the grunge movement, Bush had several top 10 singles on Billboard and their 1996 album Razorblade Suitcase hit number one. They released two more albums before breaking up in 2002. Bush then reformed in 2010 and have been writing prolifically ever since, releasing three more albums: 2011’s Memories, 2014’s Man on the Run and most recently 2017’s Black and White Rainbows.
Kingdom will represent their fourth album release in the past 10 years. Bush most recently were in the GTA playing a spirited show at Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival last summer but hopefully they will soon sign on to expand their U.S. tour into Canada.
