KROQ presents Bush with She Wants Revenge and Leopold and his Fiction.
Bush: Bush brought the grunge world to its knees when they released their debut alternative album Sixteen Stone in 1994. Three more albums, hundreds of tour dates and concerts, and only seven years later Bush announced an indefinite hiatus. The members started side projects and families but after ten years they are ready to reunite! Bush is in the studio finishing their first album in nearly a decade and have scheduled tour dates. Don't miss a date on the Bush concert schedule 2011; Use Eventful as your source for Bush tour dates and concert tour information.

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.

She Wants Revenge: Gossip is whispered, cigarettes are smoked, arms are crossed and uncrossed, and then the band takes the stage. An anticipation and hush that could only be described as electric takes hold.

A beat begins--minimal, sparse. Single white beams cast shadows against the ceiling and crowd. What could either be hours or minutes later, the Kraut-rock intro turns to verse and the crowd begins to sing along: "Sick of trying to find a way inside, sick and tired of all the after." A shriek-like scream builds from the back of the crowd and moves to the front where a congregation of girls are camped in anticipation. And just about this time a peculiar thing starts to happen, everyone starts dancing.

And suddenly we are saved. Saved from the legions of samey throwback bands, saved from another night of being too hip to dance, and saved from ourselves. She Wants Revenge have come to save us all.

Leopold and his Fiction: ...... Leopold and his Fiction is the balanced reincarnate of a sultry era of Western darkness underneath big city lights and country back roads leading to the morning shore of a transpiring musical horizon. The honest and transcendent San Francisco Rock ‘n' Roll band escalating into the west coast music scene, Leopold and his Fiction acquires a moody-pop frame derived from distant genres and unwavering imagination in an attempt to reinvent what each member feels has dissipated from the greater measure of music. .... Leopold provides Detroit filth and guitar orientation breathing parallel with rasped vocals soaring to a grave reflection. Of the trio's American bicoastal familiarity and British influence, Daniel, along with the recent addition of bassist Micayla Grace, and drummer/organist Jon Sortland contribute to a very diverse sound through personal interests. ....

Together Leopold and his Fiction offers a morbid cohesion of California and a gentle open plains reminiscence stimulating a reason and energy for people to listen closely. A new vision in music and thought offers an alternate take to the repetition of a-sides with their own traditional sounds and elaborations.

"While the sound is certainly expansive, Leopold and His Fiction also manages to exude a certain kind of folk-tinged, backwoods charm that makes them much more than just a straight up rock-and-roll band." --NPR Second Stage ....Read Full Story...... "Their convergence results in angsty blues-flavored rock ‘n’ roll, that when paired with James’ story-inspired lyrics evokes the feel of Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home. " --Relix .... "Groovy ‘60s bop...sung by James in a hard-edge haughty voice somewhere between Van Morrison, Jim Morrison, and Eric Burdon being channeled by Jeffrey Lee Pierce. Straight-up rot gut." --Big Takeover .... "Vocalist Daniel James has a gritty, soulful, swaggering manner of singing that recalls the Detroit Motown era as easily as the White Stripes’ Jack White. Their stripped down, energetic guitar sound is not so far from that of The Stooges, and there’s a sense of physical yearning for redemption that wouldn’t be out of place in a gospel revival." --Eugene Weekly .... "The ramshackle style and rustic revival stem from parts of America’s deep, dark underbelly and together meld into a recipe of rootsy fervor." --Crawdaddy ....Read Full Story...... "With one stylistic foot in the swamp and the other in the big city gutter...Leopold and his Fiction own a sound that crept off a forgotten Southern back road and found itself wearing stylish sunglasses in a San Francisco club." --Rocky Mountain News .... "No doubt about it, these literary rapscallions still rock and will bring their highfalutin yet down and dirty sounds." --Flagstaff Live

.... Armed with a kit on his right and a vintage Farfisa organ on his left, Sortland maintains driving percussions while, at the same time, adding haunting organ chords to Leo's musical sentiments. Meanwhile, Grace's deep, brooding bass lines help solidify James' screeching lyricism and manic, gospel- and blues-inspired ax rants. -The Metropolitan Newspaper .. ..Read Full Story.. .... "It borrows from a laundry list of superstars including the twang of Johnny Cash, the intonation, perhaps even poetry, of Bob Dylan, as well as Allman Brothers’-style southern rock and The White Stripes’ signature rawness, but the comparisons don’t do justice to the band’s originality." --Stereo Subversion ....Read Full Story...... "Leopold holds on to their charmingly bucolic pop sound and supplement it with a bass and occasional organ... More great music from a great band you need to know now." --Indie Rock Reviews .... "This San Francisco trio has a sound that is similar to stripped down version of These United States or a power trio version of The White Stripes. This is blues rock music that combines of grit, soul, and intelligence." --The Wheel's Still In Spin .... "Kinda like the Kings of Leon before that band got dull, Leopold and His Fiction plays meta-rock with all sorts of rootsy trappings...Best of all, this stuff is played with style and energy." --Aiding & Abetting .... "Lead singer/songwriter Daniel James has crafted an album that’s enjoyable from start to finish - it’s a gritty, gruff, hard-edged document from an exciting young band" --Pop Headwound .... "An album that sticks to Southern Rock basics, but manages to wind through Dead-like jams, uptempo Allmans rock, sauntering country pop and everywhere in between...The band has always been the anti-corporate antidote to Kings of Leon, and a more grounded, song-based version of My Morning Jacket." --Berkeley Place .... "A nice way to start off the new year." --Hear Ya

....

"The trio is completely tight and incorporate a real southern edged flare to their music while not going too far with the twang" --The Fire Note .... "SF has had a deep culture, history, of excellent Americana, “alt.country”, whatever you want to call it and these guys carry the torch just fine." --KZSU Zookeeper Online....Read Full Story..
