GAVIN ROSSDALE Puts BUSH On Hold

BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale intends to put the band on the sidelines while he concentrates on his new side project.

"I've been writing loads of songs and its very experimental," Rossdale told Kerrang! magazine. "BUSH is just on a hiatus and we'll make a new record in the future, definitely. But as for this project, I'm trying to keep the details under wraps in case it doesn't work out. I'm really excited by it."

BUSH's last album, "Golden State", sold only 81,000 in sales in the first two weeks of release in October 2001, less than the first week posted by the British group's previous album, "The Science of Things", which sold 106,000 copies upon its release and debuted at No. 11 in October 1999. "The Science of Things" has since gone on to sell over a million copies in the U.S., while BUSH's debut album, 1994's "Sixteen Stone", has moved over six million units to date.
