Bush Rocking With New Album and New Lineup

Ten years since the release of their last album, Bush are gearing up for the release of ‘The Sea of Memories,’ set to hit stores Sept. 13. The disc will be the first release on the group’s own label, Zuma Rock Records, which is in a partnership with eOne Music.

The music isn’t the only thing new coming from the London-based band, however. They also have some new faces, as Bush guitarist Nigel Pulsford and bassist Dave Parsons bowed out of the band after the release of the 2001 album, ‘Golden State.’

Following the departure of Pulsford and Parsons, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale pursued his own side projects, including a new group Institute, as well as a solo album, while juggling his personal life with wife Gwen Stefani and their two sons.

“I felt very inspired by my solo project,” Rossdale tells Billboard. “But I couldn’t help but feel like I was in a boxing match with one arm behind my back, not being able to be doing Bush.”

When the opportunity presented itself for a new Bush album, Rossdale reunited with the band’s original drummer, Robin Goodridge, as well as guitarist Chris Traynor, who has been playing with Rossdale since Bush’s Golden State tour. Their new lineup now also consists of Corey Britz on bass.

In preparation for the release of ‘The Sea of Memories,’ Bush are hitting the road at full speed, where they are reconnecting with fans who supported their music early on when they formed in 1992.

“We’re lucky because we made records that really were instrumental in the backdrop of people’s lives,” Rossdale says. “At shows, I see the kind of release people have and the gratitude they have toward me for doing it again. I had very low expectations going into this, but to see that it’s justified, it’s brilliant.”
