The 12-track set, recorded in London with producer Dave Sardy (Marilyn Manson, Dandy Warhols) and mixed in Los Angeles, is led by the single "Speed Kills." The cut impacts radio Sept. 10, but is already getting strong airplay at such stations as KITS San Francisco, KWOD Sacramento, Calif., and WOCL Orlando, Fla. Eager fans can also hear a sample of the track on the Bush page of Atlantic's official Web site, or on the band's official Web site.
A video for "Speed Kills" was recently shot in London by Canadian director Ulf Buddensieck. No tour plans are finalized, but Bush may play some European dates before the end of the year, and will likely return to North America in February.
Frontman Gavin Rossdale told Billboard earlier this year that the new set "has more in common with the first record [than our recent efforts]. After doing 'Sixteen Stone,' I didn't even want to try to copy that record -- that gets you in tons of trouble. Now [that] we've had our maverick journey through the landscape of rock records, this one has come back full circle."
Bush's last studio album, "The Science of Things," debuted at No. 11 on The Billboard 200 in 1999 and featured the single "The Chemicals Between Us," which topped Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.
