Bush have announced their return with their long-awaited ninth full-length album, The Art of Survival, slated for release on October 7 via BMG.
The Art of Survival will mark the multi-Platinum, Grammy-nominated rock band’s first new release since their critically acclaimed 2020 album The Kingdom.
After hinting at their new chapter for some time, the group has unveiled the hard-hitting and hypnotic new single “More Than Machines.”
On the track, Bush singer and guitarist Gavin Rossdale assures, “Girls you in control, not the government.”
Speaking about the song, Rossdale said, “This is an action-packed song with three really big topics. Off the bat, I don’t understand how anyone has the audacity to get involved or assume responsibility for women’s bodies. I wanted to reference that because it’s important to discuss.”
“As much as the song is about the destruction of women’s rights, it’s about the destruction of the planet and the move for A.I. and a world of robots to replace us. It’s a topic we’ve heard since the fifties,” he added. “I’m not here to teach anything though; my job is medieval like a town crier. I come into town with my elixirs and sing about it, so it hopefully goes out into the universe.”
The central theme speaks to both the human spirit’s resiliency in the face of trials and tribulations as well as the band’s own enduring place.
Bush wrote and recorded The Art of Survival tracks during 2022, in collaboration with Erik Ron.
