On the track, a squeaky riff collides with glitchy production as vocalist and guitarist Gavin Rossdale ensures, “Girls control you, not the government.Between snaps of fingers and guttural distortion, a hovering hook settles, “We are more than machines.

Stay tuned for the premiere of a cinematic music video to accompany the track soon.

Regarding “More than machines”, says Rossdale, “It’s an action-packed song with three very important topics. Right off the bat, I don’t understand anyone having the audacity to get involved or take responsibility for women’s bodies. I wanted to make it reference because it’s important to discuss. As much as the song is about the destruction of women’s rights, it’s about the destruction of the planet and the movement of AI and a world of robots to replace us. It’s a subject we’ve been hearing since the fifties. I’m not here to teach anything; my work is medieval like a town crier. I come to town with my elixirs and sing about it. , so hopefully it will come out in-universe.

Continuing once more, BUSH wrote and recorded what would become The art of survival during 2022, reviving with Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, Godsmack] which produced “Flowers On A Grave” and the title track from the band’s previous album, The kingdom (2020), and collaborates again on two titles with a film composer, musician and producer Tyler Bates [300Guardian of the Galaxy]. The central theme speaks both to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of trials and tribulations as well as the band’s enduring place as rock’s outliers.

Rossdale adds, “Instead of being sad or feeling sorry for ourselves, it’s about the success stories of humanity’s survival against all odds. People just find a way to get through it. We’ve all obviously suffered at times. varying degrees. I believe the nature of life is the art of survival. Everyone is tested all the time, but we find a way. In recent memory, we have made major progress and demonstrated a great resilience in the face of war, endless examples of racism, gender politics, a pandemic, and a melting pot of what we’ve been through. For me, The Art of Survival encompasses all of that.

Last weekend, BUSH treated fans to a special rendition of the new song during the sold-out Atlantis Concert for Earth festival in the Azores, Portugal, which highlights and celebrates global efforts to conserve the planet.
