On June 22, 2010, it was announced that Bush would
play their first show in eight years at the second-annual
Epicenter Music Festival in Fontana, California on September 25,
2010. A new album, then-titled Everything Always Now, was also
announced as well as a new single "Afterlife".
Founding members Nigel Pulsford and Dave Parsons both decided not
to rejoin the band, with Rossdale stating:
ď Iíve been speaking to Nigel a lot and each time I do a record,
Iíd ask him to do it. Heís happy and itís not something he wanted
to do ó he has a family. I spoke to Dave. I was surprised because
I thought heíd do it. He thought about it for the weekend and then
said he couldnít. He didnít want to commit and then back out ó he
didnít know how long he could tour. Itís an absurd amount of
Pulsford and Parsons were replaced by Chris Traynor and Corey
Britz respectively. Traynor had also stood in for Pulsford during
the Golden State tour. The new line up played seven shows in 2010,
performing songs from Bush's previous four albums as well as their
new song "Afterlife".
Gavin announced on Radio that the album had been renamed The Sea
of Memories. The first single of the album, "The Sound of Winter"
was released in July 2011 of their new album. The album is
scheduled to be released in September. Also, Bush is currently out
on tour with bands Filter and Chevelle.
