Bush set UK release date for The Sea Of Memories

earMUSIC, the Hamburg based rock label which is part of Edel Group, is proud to announce the release of the new Bush album, ‘The Sea of Memories’, to be released in the UK on October 24th 2011 distributed by Absolute via Universal. This release is the first studio album from the band in over 10 years. It will be released on CD and as a limited edition double CD. The double CD will feature 8 exclusive tracks picked personally by the band for Europe from their archive of unreleased remixes and live performances.

The British-born band has had more success over the course of their first half-dozen years than most artists do in a lifetime. From 1994’s Sixteen Stone to 2001’s Golden State, they made some of the most successful rock albums in recent memory, selling over 15 million albums to date worldwide.

“We are the sum of everything we’ve done – right, wrong and in-between,” says singer and guitarist Gavin Rossdale ironically. “We’re all victims, and benefactors, of our past.”

The Sea of Memories is drenched in Bush’s trademark intensity and driven by Rossdale’s emotive, bittersweet vocals, but it’s also infused with an immediacy that pushes the album into new, compelling directions. From their lead single, the atmospheric powerhouse “The Sound of Winter,” to the rapid-fire exuberance of “All My Life,” Bush reveals itself as a re-energized band. It’s a fresh mindset that’s at least partially influenced by events surrounding the making of this record.

The Sea of Memories is Bush’s first indie effort since the early 1990s. Rossdale’s own imprint, Zuma Rock Records, will issue the album through an exclusive partnership with earMUSIC in Europe. “It’s been a relief and a breath of fresh air,” says Rossdale of making the leap from a major label, and being able to work under fewer creative constraints. “There’s a pressure that comes with being on a major. If you’re nurtured and looked after properly, it gives you the freedom and confidence to be creative, and from that comes good results. But it can also be disheartening. This feels good. This feels right.”
