Interview: Guitarists Gavin Rossdale and Chris Traynor Discuss the New Bush Album, ‘The Sea of Memories’
It took a full decade, but ’90s alternative rock outfit Bush have come back down from the clouds.
Fronted by lead singer/rhythm guitarist Gavin Rossdale, the band, best known for radio staples like “Comedown” and “Machinehead,” return September 13 with their fifth full-length release, The Sea of Memories.
When it came to reforming Bush, “It was like, ‘Why am I fighting this?’” said Rossdale, who’s joined by original drummer Robin Goodridge, former touring guitarist Chris Traynor and new bassist Corey Britz on the upcoming LP, the band’s first since disbanding after 2001’s Golden State.
Even during Bush’s downtime, however, Rossdale and Traynor couldn’t escape each other; the two played together in post-Bush project Institute, and Traynor contributed to Rossdale’s 2008 solo album.
