Bush have announced “The Mind Plays Tricks On You” is the title of its new studio album, with a tentative release in the fall. the album is being co-produced with film composer Tyler Bates, who has previously worked with Marilyn Manson.
“The Mind Plays Tricks On You” will include a new song called “Bullet Holes”, which will also be featured in the upcoming film “John Wick 3”.
Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale told SiriusXM’s Larry Flick about how “Bullet Holes” came together “Ironically, it was completely written disconnected to the movie. I’ve done this record with Tyler Bates, and he’s doing the music for the whole movie. And I wrote that song with him with nothing of that in mind; actually, a different song we had in mind we were hoping for. And then just the way that the words that I wrote just really fit with the whole symphony thing, and bullet holes, obviously, ’cause that’s what the song is called.”
Rossdale recently told Consequence Of Sound that BUSH’s new album turned out more aggressive than some of the band’s recent efforts. He explained: “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… 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”.
