Bush has announced a new album called The Art of Survival.

The ninth studio effort from the “Glycerine” rockers arrives October 7. It’s the follow-up to 2020’s The Kingdom, which includes the single “Flowers on a Grave.”

The first preview of The Art of Survival is a song called “More than Machines,” which alludes to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

“This is an action-packed song with three really big topics,” says frontman Gavin Rossdale. “Off the bat, I don’t understand how anyone has the audacity to get involved or assume responsibility for women’s bodies. I wanted to reference that 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 move for A.I. and a world of robots to replace us,” he continues. “It’s a topic we’ve heard since the fifties. I’m not here to teach anything though; my job is medieval like a town crier. I come into town with my elixirs and sing about it, so it hopefully goes out into the universe.”

You can listen to “More than Machines” now via digital outlets. An accompanying lyric video is streaming now on YouTube.

Bush will hit the road this summer on a U.S. tour with Alice in Chains and Breaking Benjamin. The outing kicks off August 10 in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania.

Here’s the track list for The Art of Survival:

“Heavy Is the Ocean”

“Slow Me”

“More Than Machines”

“May Your Love Be Pure”

“Shark Bite”

“Human Sand”

“Kiss Me I’m Dead”


“Creatures of the Fire”

“Judas Is a Riot”


“1000 Years”
