For the first time since their 2002 disbandment, Bush is back.
The Gavin Rossdale-led band, perhaps best known for a string of wildly successful ‘90s hits including “Glycerine” and “Machinehead,” are set to debut a brand new album on September 13 — with a few changes.
The Sea of Memories will be released on their very own Zuma Rock Records through an exclusive partnership with eOne music. Having sold millions of albums during their time with Interscope, The Sea of Memories marks the band’s first indie release.

Two new faces join the group, as well. Opting not to return, Bassist Dave Parsons and guitarist Nigel Pulsford have been replaced by Corey Britz and Chris Traynor respectively.
The Sea of Memories will include tracks like “The Sound of Winter,” “The Heart of the Matter” and “All Night Doctors,” featuring guitar heavy melodies combined with simple song structure and layers of rich texture. Producing the album is Bob Rock, who has worked previously with Aerosmith and Metallica, and aims to deliver the same level of classic Bush intensity with a fresh sound.

“When making music, you have a choice to repeat what you’ve done or move on,” said frontman Rossdale. “It would’ve been safe to just rework 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 changing, developing and morphing.”
The band is currently finalizing plans for a fall tour, but will kick off their comeback with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! July 21. Additionally, they have scheduled performances at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City for July 28 (for which tickets sold out in less than one minute) and at the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles on August 20.
