Inspired by Pearl Jam and Nirvana, Bush came to embody British alternative rock. Fronted by Gavin Rossdale, the band was signed to a deal with Hollywood Records in 1993 at the peak of American grunge music's popularity. They recorded their debut album soon after and released the single "Everything Zen". With the help of LA based radio station, KROQ, the single went into heavy rotation and gave Bush a hit single. They released their worldwide smash debut, Sixteen Stone, at the tail end of 1994 and it became a slow-burning success. The album scored Bush a total of five top #5 US Modern Rock hit singles on the Billboard charts and was eventually certified six times platinum in the US. Bush tour dates were scheduled on a headlining tour with label-mates and future superstars - No Doubt.

Bush was quick to record their follow-up and released their sophomore set, Razorblade Suitcase, in 1996. The album featured the lead single "Swallowed" which spent seven weeks at #1 on the Modern Rock tracks survey. The album also featured the hit track "Greedy Fly" and featured production by grunge impresario, Steve Albini. The album was also a multi-Platinum success and Bush toured in support of the album. Bush tour dates were scheduled as the headlining act on KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas in 1996, an event where they have performed four times. Bush then released a remix album featuring a techno infused remake of the single "Mouth", which was featured in the film American Werewolf in Paris.

After an extensive Bush concert schedule, Rossdale retreated to Dublin where he worked on material for the band's upcoming album The Science of Things. Following the massive success of Bush, a label war between indie imprint Trauma Records and major label Interscope over who owned the rights to Bush's new material ensued. After a resolution, the electronica infused disc was released and featured the modern rock hit "The Chemicals Between Us". The album was certified Platinum and Bush tour dates were scheduled with international concert performances. Bush released one more album, Golden State, and announced a breakup in 2002. Bush toured in support of the album, but couldn't attain previous record sales. A Best Of was released in 2005 followed by a live disc, Zen X Four, and the band was officially over.

Gavin Rossdale went solo and focused on his relationship with megastar Gwen Stefani before releasing his own solo acoustic material. Other bandmates focused on side projects, but none matched the chemistry of Bush, nor the success. By mid-2010, a Bush reunion was announced and a new album Everything Always New was confirmed for release in 2011. Bush is currently in the studio putting the final touches on their first album in a decade. While the release date is pending, Bush tour dates are scheduled throughout the US periodically. Bush remains as one of the few remaining grunge/alt acts of the '90s and is certainly one of the most successful. Don't miss a date on the Bush concert schedule 2011.
