BUSH Is Working With TYLER BATES On 'Deep,' 'Wide' And 'Heavy' New Album

BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale has told Yahoo! Entertainment that he is currently recording the band's next album at a Los Angeles studio with film composer Tyler Bates, who has previously worked with Marilyn Manson.

"I just came from the studio now," he said. "And I sang 11 songs in. And it's just deep and wide and heavy like the ocean." He went on to describe the sessions with Bates as "amazing and liberating." He added: "It's exciting. It sounds amazing."

Rossdale also said that he hopes to release a new single before BUSH hits 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". Produced by Live Nation, this hits-packed road show will hit arenas and outdoor amphitheaters in 33 cities across the country, kicking off June 6 in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with stops in Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more before wrapping September 8 in Rochester, Michigan at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre.

Rossdale told Yahoo! Entertainment that he considered a tour on which BUSH played all of "Sixteen Stone", but explained: "I've never liked when people do that, because that just felt like you build your own box. Why are you building a box? You're like building a house with no door. I don't like that. I like having big windows. I like the future. I like the moment. I'm happy with the past, and I'm going to play these songs because I lived them, but I'm going to sing them about tonight."

BUSH's latest effort, 2017's "Black And White Rainbows", was crafted after the frontman went through a divorce with pop star/reality TV judge Gwen Stefani in 2015.

BUSH's current lineup also includes drummer Robin Goodridge, guitarist Chris Traynor and bassist Corey Britz.

The group, which broke up in 2002 but reunited in 2010, has released three albums since reforming.
