Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale has told Consequence Of Sound that the band is putting the finishing touches on its next album at a Los Angeles studio with producer Tyler Bates, who has previously worked with Marilyn Manson.

Rossdale remarked, “The whole record is really heavy. 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.”

Rossdale confirmed that the band has finished laying down its tracks for the record, which needs to be mixed and mastered for a fall release. He added, “It's going to devastate people.”

Bush will hit the road with Live later this spring on “The Alt-Imate Tour,” on which the two bands will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their respective landmark albums Sixteen Stone and Throwing Copper. The 33-city trek kicks off June 6th in Mashantucket, Connecticut, wrapping on September 8th in Rochester, Michigan.
