BUSH's 'Really Heavy' New Album Will 'Devastate People,' Says GAVIN ROSSDALE

BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale has told Consequence Of Sound that the band is putting the finishing touches on its next album at a Los Angeles studio with film composer Tyler Bates, who has previously worked with Marilyn Manson.

"The whole record is really heavy," Gavin said. "I decided to make a really heavy record. The last record I made was a bit more commercially minded because for whatever reason, I wanted to do that. But this time I was [inspired by] playing so many live shows and all these heavy metal festivals.

"I worked with Tyler Bates and I've written four songs with him, and he co-produced the rest of the album," he continued. "Tyler is a fantastic musician and songwriter and it's just great. The band is sounding great and I think the songs came together great.

"I've finished everything on my end. The band's finished on the album. Tyler has few things to do and we have to mix it and master it. In the fall, when we do our own headline shows, that's when we'll release the record. It's going to devastate people."

BUSH will hit the road with LIVE later this spring. "The Alt-Imate Tour", a co-headline summer run, will see BUSH and LIVE celebrating the 25th anniversary of their respective landmark albums "Sixteen Stone" and "Throwing Copper". Produced by Live Nation, this hits-packed road show will hit arenas and outdoor amphitheaters in 33 cities across the country, kicking off June 6 in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with stops in Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more before wrapping September 8 in Rochester, Michigan at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre.

BUSH's latest effort, 2017's "Black And White Rainbows", was crafted after the frontman went through a divorce with pop star/reality TV judge Gwen Stefani in 2015.

BUSH's current lineup also includes drummer Robin Goodridge, guitarist Chris Traynor and bassist Corey Britz.

The group, which broke up in 2002 but reunited in 2010, has released three albums since reforming.
