[lastfm]Bush[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Gavin Rossdale[/lastfm] recently spoke out about the band’s upcoming album after its nine-year hiatus.
Rossdale, who released an album with[lastfm] Institute[/lastfm] and a solo album during the break, said he was working on new material when he began to think about the prospect of Bush reuniting and touring.
“I felt the other stuff was cool, but it was more default than by design,” he told Billboard. “That whole time I was thinking, ‘Man, why is it not Bush? This is so crazy.’ I’m so pleased because I’ve got my voice back. To be in Bush, the band you’re basically born to be in, it’s like a suit of armor. It’s very exciting.”
Bush’s current lineup includes Rossdale, original drummer [lastfm]Robin Goodridge[/lastfm], guitarist [lastfm]Chris Traynor[/lastfm] and new bassist [lastfm]Corey Britz.[/lastfm] The band’s new album, Everything Always Now, is slated for an October release and its first single, “Afterlife,” is now available.
Bush’s last album, Golden State, was released in 2001.
