As fans anxiously await the release of Bush's new album, 'Man on the Run,' on Oct. 21, the band has announced the reissue of several early albums a week prior to that.
On Oct. 14, remastered editions of 1994's 'Sixteen Stone,' 1996's 'Razorblade Suitcase,' 1997's remix album 'Deconstructed' and 1999's 'The Science of Things' will be released via Round Hill Records. You can check out a remastered version of their hit 'Glycerine' over at Spin.com.
Frontman Gavin Rossdale spoke with The Pulse of Radio (via Blabbermouth) about putting the reissues together. "We've done some remastering of the stuff and we've got some nice things planned, some alternate versions of things," Rossdale said. "It's been quite nostalgic for me, going back into the past, I mean looking through oceans of old photographs and being maybe quite nostalgic when I try not to be nostalgic. It's fun and enlightening and heartwarming and sad all at once."
After splitting up in 2002, Bush got back together a few years ago and released 'The Sea of Memories' in 2011. Rossdale spoke with Loudwire Nights host Full Metal Jackie about the most significant artistic and creative growth the band has experienced since 'The Sea of Memories.'
"I think getting the confidence that doing Bush makes sense," Rossdale says. "And the confidence knowing that there are people out there that want Bush gave me the vibe to go forward and make a really quintessential, strong Bush record that people could relate to."
Rossdale continues, "Having said that, I always want every record to be a standalone record. It can be like we never made a record before or after it that it would stand alone, and I think it does that. I like this life, I love being in Bush and I was really sad when I wasn’t in Bush so it’s nice to be able to do this record full in the knowledge that there’s a fever from the Bush army and the fans to get it done."
