Biography of the Artist
Neil Z. Yeung is the author of this piece.
Bush is an English rock band that rose to prominence during the early 1990s grunge craze, becoming the first British band to break through in America since Nirvana. Following the worldwide multi-platinum success of their breakthrough debut, Sixteen Stone, in 1994, they went on to chart-topping success with Razorblade Suitcase in 1995. The band, led by guitarist/vocalist Gavin Rossdale, closed off their peak era of success with 1999’s experimental The Science of Things, which was a radio and MTV smash. The group disbanded in 2001 due to lineup changes and Golden State’s dismal performance; they would not resurface for nearly a decade. Meanwhile, Rossdale formed a new band and began working on solo material, ultimately resurrecting the band in 2010. The next year, they made a huge return with The Sea of Memories, which marked the start of a new era for Bush. Rossdale and his band stayed busy throughout the 2010s, releasing two more albums (Man on the Run in 2014 and Black and White Rainbows in 2017) while maintaining a demanding touring schedule.
Bush, which was founded by Rossdale in late 1992, had an American record contract before they even had a British label. Sixteen Stone, their first album, was released in late 1994 by Interscope Records and was produced by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley (producers of early-’80s successes by Madness and Elvis Costello, among others). Bush’s “Everything Zen” video had appeared in MTV’s Buzz Bin by the end of December, and the album was on its way to gold certification by the spring of 1995. By that time, the band had achieved enough popularity in the United States to secure a British record contract, but they were unable to replicate their American success in the United Kingdom.
Sixteen Stone became a huge success in the United States in 1995, with “Little Things” hitting number four on the contemporary rock charts in the spring and “Comedown” and “Glycerine” reaching number one on the modern rock charts and moving over into the mainstream Top 40 later that year. Bush got bad criticism and contempt from alternative music insiders despite their mainstream popularity. To address the criticism, the band enlisted the help of Steve Albini, who is known for his harsh productions for Pixies, Nirvana, and PJ Harvey, as well as a slew of other indie bands. In time for the 1996 Christmas season, the Razorblade Suitcase was launched. The album received mixed reviews but received more favorable reviews than Sixteen Stone, debuting at number one in the United States and number four in the United Kingdom. The album’s smash singles “Swallowed,” “Greedy Fly,” and “Cold Contagious” were released in the spring of 1997. Later that year, the band enlisted Goldie, Philip Steir, Dub Pistols, and Tricky for the Deconstructed electronic remix collection.
Bush returned in the autumn of 1999 with The Science of Things. On the strength of songs like “The Chemicals Between Us,” which topped the Billboard Modern Rock chart, the album was certified platinum. With the guitar-driven album Golden State, released in late 2001, they returned to their roots. Despite the fact that it did not chart as well as prior albums, fans continued to support Bush, as demonstrated by their sold-out tour throughout North America. Helmet guitarist Chris Traynor was recruited as a touring member at this period. However, some months later, when founding member Nigel Pulsford announced his resignation in May, the band’s dynamics shifted dramatically. Pulsford, who had begun a solo career as well as a new family, departed quietly and without fanfare. Traynor took his place, although the tour would still be the last for the original Bush band. They split up in 2002, with Rossdale re-entering the music scene in 2004 with a new project, Institute, and a solo album, Wanderlust, in 2008. Bush would not be heard from again for a decade, despite the release of a Best Of compilation (which featured a recording of their Woodstock ’99 performance) and Zen X Four (a double-disc live album/music video collection) in 2005.
Rossdale reformed Bush alongside Traynor, bassist Corey Britz, and original drummer Robin Goodridge in 2011, following years of preparation; Pulsford and Parsons refused to rejoin the band. That year, they released The Sea of Memories, their fifth studio album and first since 2001’s Golden State, which was produced by Bob Rock. The first song “The Sound of Winter” topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs and Rock Songs charts, and the album reached number 18 on the Billboard 200, and the band toured in support of the album throughout 2012.
Rossdale went to the studio almost soon after returning from tour, reinvigorated by being back on the scene, and started composing another album. Man on the Run, Bush’s sixth album, was recorded with Nick Raskulinecz and Jay Baumgardner in 2014 and released in October of that year. They continued to promote the project in 2016 and returned to the studio for a follow-up. Bush released their seventh album, Black and White Rainbows, the following year. The album was promoted with a 2018 summer tour with Stone Temple Pilots and the Cult, led by the song “Mad Love.” In the year 2019, Goodridge left the band and was replaced by Nik Hughes.
Bush’s eighth studio full-length, The Kingdom, ushered in the twenty-first century. The album also featured “Bullet Holes” from John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, in addition to the lead song “Flowers on a Grave.”
