Bush & Chevelle announce co-headlining tour
Bush and Chevelle have revealed plans for a co-headlining tour this fall. The two rock favorites, along with special guests Filter, will hit Boston for a show at the House of Blues on Saturday, October 15. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $39.50 and $49.50.
Led by frontman Gavin Rossdale, Bush are back with a new lineup featuring original drummer Robin Goodridge and new members Chris Traynor and Corey Britz, who have replaced Nigel Pulsford and Dave Parsons on guitar and bass respectively. The band will be touring in support of their forthcoming release, The Sea of Memories. The album, their fifth studio effort and first since 2001′s Golden State, will hit stores on September 13. The Sea of Memories, which features lead single “The Sound of Winter”, was produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith).
“When making music, you have a choice to repeat what you’ve done or move on,” said Rossdale of the recording process in a press release. “It would’ve been safe to just rework (1994′s debut album) Sixteen Stone over and over, but what kind of life would that be? When you’re driving down the road, you’re focused on what’s in front of you; you don’t really think to keep checking in your rear view mirror. I like the idea of art changing, developing and morphing.”
Chevelle continue to tour behind their fifth studio album, Sci-Fi Crimes, which was released in August of 2009. The Chicago-based trio spent seven weeks co-producing Sci-Fi Crimes with Brian Virtue (Jane’s Addiction, 30 Seconds to Mars) in Nashville, Tennessee. The album features singles “Jars”, “Letter from a Thief” and “Shameful Metaphors”.
