Bush

Supports Bon Jovi 5 july - mAIN STAGE 
 

The headline of the Billboard article said it all: “Like They Never Left.” The story, which ran in the Oct 29, 2011 issue, hailed the return of mega-platinum rock band BUSH, who had just self-released The Sea of Memories, their first album in 10 years and wasted no time returning to the top of the charts. In fact, they did it in grand style: the album’s lead single, “The Sound of Winter,” made rock radio history by becoming the first self-released song ever to hit No. 1 at Alternative Radio. “The Sound of Winter” also holds the distinction of being the reunited group’s first No. 1 single since 1999’s chart-topping hit, “The Chemicals Between Us.”

“It's the most brilliant start we could have imagined,” says Bush vocalist/guitarist Gavin Rossdale. “Having a No. 1 song at radio is a testament to not only the band, but the great team that surrounds us, the support at radio and of course, the tireless fans who give us daily oxygen – we’re thankful for it all.”

Guitarist Chris Traynor has played with Bush since the Golden State tour. He was also part of Rossdale’s ensuing band, Institute, and on the singer’s more recent solo projects. “I think every Bush record has been sonically and stylistically different from the last,” says Traynor. “The engine that drives the band, and makes it Bush, is Gavin's songwriting and singing. The ever-expanding vocabulary and musical territory of the band has to do with his overall vision as an artist. I really respect the fact that Gavin is driven to push forward and progress musically.”
