Bush have been doing a little bit of looking back of late with the 20th Anniversary reissue of Razorblade Suitcase and the release of the previously unreleased song “Sleeper,” but the band is about to move forward with new music. During a recent chat with the New Music Buzz, seen above, singer Gavin Rossdale confirms that he was just coming from finishing up recording on the seventh studio album, though he was still working on things like sequencing the music.
The still-untitled effort will be the band’s seventh release and is the follow-up to 2014’s Man on the Run. And given that Bush have scheduled their first extended touring of 2017 in May with dates booked into July, it’s likely that we could see some music this spring or early summer.
The band just announced their North American trek, which will kick off May 4 in Dallas, with shows booked through June 10, with a pair of July dates also on the schedule. The run includes rescheduled shows in Seattle and Las Vegas, as well as performances at the Northern Invasion, Rock on the Range and MMRBQ Festivals. See all of the dates below.
With some time before the album hits, Rossdale is currently serving as a coach on the U.K. version of the singing competition series The Voice.
