Bush to crowdfund new album
Gavin Rossdale's group offer up T-shirts, DVDs, handwritten lyrics and instruments for fans who want to fund the new record
The British rock band, fronted by Gavin Rossdale, have set up a page on PledgeMusic offering rewards for fans who want to help with the new record, Stereogumreports.
The group, whose last album 'Sea Of Memories' was released in 2011, will share behind-the-scenes footage and regular updates on the album to fans who pledge money in exchange for T-shirts, instruments, DVDs and more. In a post on the site, Rossdale wrote: "Your support has always meant everything to us, and we’re incredibly excited to bring you this music in a direct and unique way here on PledgeMusic. By ordering anything here, you’ll get the new album digitally the moment it’s released – in fact, you’ll be the first to know all about it."
"And by joining us here, you’ll also have access to videos, previously unreleased music, exclusive photos, and the chance to have some amazing experiences and interactions with Chris, Robin, Corey and me. It’s an exciting way for us to share the process of releasing our new music. Thanks always for the continued support. We couldn’t do this new thing without you. Big love."
The band confirmed earlier this year that they had begun work on the new record at Dave Grohl's studio, Studio 606, in Northridge, California. Grohl does not appear to be personally involved, with the band instead working with producer Nick Raskulinecz, best known for his work with Deftones, Foo Fighters, and Alice In Chains. Bush recently debuted a handful of new songs while on tour in the US with titles including 'This House Is On Fire' and 'Loneliness Is A Killer'.
