Bush announce three London gigs

As they gear up for the release of their highly anticipated new album The Sea Of Memories, multi-platinum rock band Bush are returning to the UK for their first London-based shows in years. This string of special performances kicks off with a Sunday, November 20th show at Bush Hall, followed by a November 21st gig at the 100 Club and a November 22nd date at Cargo. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, August 5th, priced at £35.00 (subject to booking fee) and available at www.livenation.co.uk

Recorded with producer Bob Rock (Aerosmith, Metallica), The Sea Of Memories is the first Bush album to be released via the band’s own imprint, Zuma Rock Records, through an exclusive partnership with eOne Music. The album’s lead single, “The Sound of Winter,” is generating serious buzz on the other side of the pond, garnering heavy radio airplay and rocketing onto the top ten on the iTunes Alternative Chart. The band (vocalist/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, guitarist Chris Traynor, drummer Robin Goodridge, and bassist Corey Britz) recently performed the song on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” – click here to view: http://www.youtube.com/bushofficial#p/f/1/-4fxYhowBQs

The Sea Of Memories captures the electricity and trademark intensity of classic Bush delivered in a setting that’s fresh and alive. Songs like “The Sound of Winter,” “The Heart of the Matter” and “All Night Doctors” are propelled by heavy guitar and hypnotic beats, simple song structures and sublime textures.

About the album, Rossdale says, “When making music, you have a choice to repeat what you’ve done or move on. It would’ve been safe to just rework (1994’s debut album) ‘Sixteen Stone’ over and over, but what kind of life would that be? When you’re driving down the road, you’re focused on what’s in front of you; you don’t really think to keep checking in your rear view mirror. I like the idea of art changing, developing and morphing.”

Over the course of their remarkable career, Bush has sold more than 16 million albums in the U.S. and Canada alone. They’ve also compiled an amazing string of 14 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, including ten that hit the Top 5.  Four of these became No. 1 hits: “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Swallowed” and “The Chemicals Between Us.”
