BUSH‘s official Jesse Davey-directed music video for the song “Bullet Holes” can be seen below. The song is featured in the newly released film “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum”” and was written with film composer Tyler Bates, who has previously worked with Marilyn Manson.
“‘Bullet Holes’ is one of four songs Gavin Rossdale and I wrote together for the forthcoming BUSH record,” says Bates. “At that time, I was working on the score for this film, and once Gavin sang the chorus, I felt the song would be a perfect complement to the movie. We sent the track to the director, Chad Stahelski, and he was into it. We are very psyched that this song is now part of the John Wick world.”
It is not clear if “Bullet Holes” will also appear on BUSH‘s next studio album, “The Mind Plays Tricks On You”, which is tentatively due in the fall. The disc was recently recorded at a Los Angeles studio.
Rossdale told SiriusXM‘s Larry Flick about how “Bullet Holes” came together: “Ironically, it was completely written disconnected to the movie. I’ve done this record with Tyler Bates, and he’s doing the music for the whole movie. And I wrote that song with him with nothing of that in mind; actually, a different song we had in mind we were hoping for. And then just the way that the words that I wrote just really fit with the whole symphony thing, and bullet holes, obviously, ’cause that’s what the song is called.”
Rossdale recently told Consequence Of Sound that BUSH‘s new album turned out more aggressive than some of the band’s recent efforts. He explained: “I decided to make a really heavy record. The last record I made was a bit more commercially minded because for whatever reason, I wanted to do that. But this time I was [inspired by] playing so many live shows and all these heavy metal festivals.
“I worked with Tyler Bates and I’ve written four songs with him, and he co-produced the rest of the album,” he continued. “Tyler is a fantastic musician and songwriter and it’s just great. The band is sounding great and I think the songs came together great… It’s going to devastate people.”
BUSH will hit the road with LIVE later this spring. “The Alt-Imate Tour”, a co-headline summer run, will see BUSH and LIVE celebrating the 25th anniversary of their respective landmark albums “Sixteen Stone” and “Throwing Copper”. Produced by Live Nation, this hits-packed road show will hit arenas and outdoor amphitheaters in 33 cities across the country, kicking off June 6 in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with stops in Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more before wrapping September 8 in Rochester, Michigan at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre.
BUSH‘s latest effort, 2017’s “Black And White Rainbows”, was crafted after the frontman went through a divorce with pop star/reality TV judge Gwen Stefani in 2015.
BUSH‘s current lineup also includes drummer Robin Goodridge, guitarist Chris Traynor and bassist Corey Britz.
The group, which broke up in 2002 but reunited in 2010, has released three albums since reforming.
