At 5pm PST, KROQ made the huge announcement that the 90′s alt-grunge phenomenon, Bush, were officially reuniting!!!!! As you all know, I’m a huge Bush fan and have been for the past 15 years (and, I just aged myself) so this is some pretty momentous news. Mr. Rossdale was at the radio station in person and on hand to deliver Bush’s first single in 9 years, AfterLife, from their upcoming album, Everything Always Now (lovin’ the name), which is expected to drop sometime in October of this year. You can listen to the track by clicking here and scrolling to the bottom.
As if that news wasn’t enough to make a hardcore fan weak at the knees, it was also announced that the band would be playing their first show as a powerhouse foursome again at the Epicenter Festival, taking place September 25th and 26th in Ontario, California, along with Blink 182, Kiss, Eminem and 30 Seconds to Mars, just to name a few. However, Gavin did not make any mention of the line up or whether it would include the original members: Dave, Robin and Nigel.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make the CA date, but really hope this is the first of many shows because there is no way I cannot be a part of this. Plus, it’s been exactly 10 years since my last Bush show and that is just unacceptable!
Any Bush fans out there that share my enthusiasm? Let’s make some noise and show the boys our support! Request AfterLife on your local rock stations!
