stryker gavin World Premiere: New Music From Bush   Gavin Rossdale Visits KROQ

As you may have heard, KROQ‘s Stryker had a special guest in studio today. He promised someone who we haven’t heard from in quite some time and who has also sold over ten million records.

But of course, Stryker was talking about none other than Gavin Rossdale of the band Bush. Gavin stopped by to World Premiere the first Bush song in 9 years (since 2001’s Golden State), a song titled “Afterlife.” He also talked about how Bush’s first performance since 2002 will be at Epicenter Twenty Ten.  There is a “massive excitement” that comes with hearing songs for the first time on the radio Gavin said.

Bush is scheduled to release their new album “Everything Always Now” in October of this year.

Listen to “Afterlife” by hitting more!

    I can not put into words how overjoyed I am. All is (almost) right in the world again!!!

  2. Scott says:

    I didn’t like the song the 1st time, I liked it the 2nd time and I loved it the 3rd time!!! Bush is back!!!

  3. Jesse says:

    This doesn’t sound anything like old Bush,Glycerine,Machinehead,Everything Zen….Don’t get me wrong I’m glad their back together with a new album and yes a tour starting in the fall but this didn’t have the catchy grunge feeling of any Bush song from 1994-2002.I hope that they don’t disappoint me cuz I really enjoyed all their albums (except Deconstructed…which isn’t my kind of music) But let’s hope for the best anyways.

    Guys, I don’t think Nigel would play on anything this lame so don’t hold your breath

  5. Jake says:

    Where is the ripping guitar and lyrics not centered around a hook? Bring back the Razorblade Suitcase mentality.

  6. seth says:

    i got a time bomb , i got a time bomb.. the verses sound like the beck song time bomb,, and everything else sounds like a melting pot of everything from the last ten years.. but i guess it is a better song than anything on goldenstate

    1. danielle says:

      I actually loved goldenstate…it was my second favorite album…I also agree that this song does sound more like gavin’s solo stuff on Wonderlust…I was def hoping for more of a grunge and back to the heavier grungy aspects during the chorus, but i love Bush so much that I’m still exciting! But this is definitely a NEWER bush…I like their more raw stuf better..

  7. Julio says:

    Come on guys, give it a chance. Like Scott said, I didn’t like the first time, I liked it the second one and by the third one I already loved it. Yes it sounds different, but didn’t The Science of Things sound different way back then? Now I love that album as well. I have great expectations for what Bush has to bring us again in October…

  8. Natalia Oliver says:

    Men I really love Bush and everything, but this song is not Bush anymore!! Is like Bush meet The Killers!!! =X I really hope the rest of this album will be the old Bush!! xxx

  9. VíctorSilvaOñate says:

  10. Alfredo Ramirez says:

  11. jvg1969 says:

  12. zoie says:

    Use to be a huge Bush fan. No longer. Thanks for ruining Bush for me. That is AWFUL.

  13. Dale says:

    Wonderful!Why isn´t Dave Persons in the band?:(

    1. Dale says:


  14. Josie says:

    sounds like a dream,i still can’t believe they’re back. ❤

  15. Myers says:

    Lame song. Deceiving… Bush should’ve stayed in the 90’s box. Not because Gwen succeded that Gavin will, obviously.

  16. Alexis says:

    OMG!! im sooooo happy!! i hit a deer, my gmom is about it die and im over-worked but THIS NEWS – and song- have TOTALLY helped me to turn things around!! SOOOOOooooo cannot wait for Oct!!! Welcome back, Boys!!

  17. john says:

    what happenned to plugging in ur guitar and making up a song in ten minutes? that was a formula that worked… i love bush, but this is too poppy and we miss the raw form of bush… i like this song, but maybe needs to be more primative… give us back the 90s bush

  18. Steve says:

    Nice job Gavin and Co. I think you hit it spot on. Cory is a good pick too! Can’t wait to see you on the road again finally!

  19. Brian says:

    wooow! I can’t believe it… I CAN NOT WAITE!

  20. doyle says:

    sounds like classic bush just a touch more mature

  21. Nicholas Bell says:

    OMFG Bush has been my favorite band since I was 10 years old “1995”. 15 years later my dreams have been answered , I might get to see them in Denver, Co. Please oh please play Colorado

  22. Clare says:

    Just awesome! My favourite band! Welcome back lads!!

  23. OneSecondBush says:

    This song is great! Can’t wait for Epicenter!

  24. pm says:

    waited this long for this techno pop B.S this is not Bush! it’s Gwen,SUCKS

  25. pm says:

    no nigel is not with the band it’s the original drummer gavin and bass player that played with bush the last six months of golden state tour .so no this is not a reunion tour no nigel. SUCKS!

  26. pm says:


  27. pm says:

    how can u call this a reunion tour without nigel! That’s like Kiss without Gene! BULLSHIT!

  28. india says:

    Weak song for a band who’ve put out so many passionate hard rocking songs

  29. Garon says:

    Unfortunately “Afterlife” sounds like it could have done by any one of a number of bands (including Blink) Nothing “signature” Bush about it. I’m disappointed. Hopefully the rest of the disc is better.

  30. Chris says:

    Wow, Ive been a bush fan for years and when I heard that they were getting back together I was stoked beyond belief, but I gotta be honest….that song wasn’t what I was expecting. I remember back in 98 or 99 they released Spacetravel over the internet and I was stoked and the song was different, but good. This time Im not so sure.

  31. Colby says:

    Liked Gavin on Apocalyptica’s “End of Me” better. Afterlife sounds like Bush from about 2:33 to 3:07. I bought the mp3 though because I love Bush…the band, not the President…

  32. pete says:

    bush is one of my all time favourite bands too. i love every song they’ve ever done. But this is not Bush. this is just gavin. with dave on drums. I’ll still support them and look forward to hearing the rest of the album. But man! The lyrics are NOT good!. The song doesn’t evoke any emotion. It’s not going to please old bush fans, OR get radio play. It’s the worst possible scenerio. I WISH I could say otherwise

  33. Mike says:

    Tragedy…..I really hope the other songs on this new album are better than this one.

  34. pm says:

    Bush went from kickass to gay ass . sucks

  35. Vic says:

    Waaaaaaay better than a lame-ass Blink-182 track..

  36. mike says:

    this song sucks what happened to the hard rockers it sounds like U2.

    1. pm says:

      Thanks Mike agreed ! apparently uriah doesn’t know about the original BUSH ! Must be a wimpy Gavin fan!

  37. Uriah says:

    I’m quite pleased with their new single. It sort of keeps to the original Bush. Meaning, they still have what it takes to prove to us that they can still provide something a little different than all the rest. By far, bush is still my favorite band of all time. Bush rocks!

    1. pm says:

      what! are u stupid

  38. Nigel says:

    I’m always in support of bands evolving, but the chorus killed it for me. GAVIN, when you write songs, think, “Is this memorable and unique?” Wanderlust sounds SOO generic and predictable. I can tell you’re going in the right direction here, but this surely isn’t your best and you know it :/ Try to stand out from the flock more. We’ve seen so much unoriginality in the past decade (movie remakes, recycled music) and we’re all craving something interesting. I hope the rest of the album is better. You’ll always have fans, but a comeback requires something more. Much love.

  39. Laura says:

    Excited for new music!!! thanks! Laura onesecondbush
