It’s being produced by the band and John Fields (Switchfoot, Jimmy Eat World) and recorded at Stacy Jones’ studio, The Deathstar.
“It feels great to make music with these guys,” exclaims Stacy Jones. “11 years in, American Hi-Fi is a brotherhood. We made this record because we feel like the world needs a few more guitar bands. We are just doing our small part to keep Rock-N-Roll alive!”

Before teaming up as American Hi-Fi, the band members performed as part of various influential bands from the ‘90s Alternative Rock scene, including Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo, and with Tanya Donelly, Tracy Bonham, Aimee Mann, and Juliana Hatfield individually. Their songs have been heard on TV shows and commercials such as Coors, Labatt Blue, Verizon, “Boston Public,” “24” and “Dawson’s Creek,” video games including “Guitar Hero 3,” and in movies including “American Pie 2,” “Freaky Friday,” “Van Wilder” and “Superman Returns.” And Stacy has produced albums at The Deathstar for such artists as The Downtown Fiction, Ingrid Michaelson, Meg & Dia, The Cab, Plain White T’s, Hey Monday and Academy Is… and many others.

BUSH fans and die-hard loyalists across North America and around the world are rejoicing over the news, as announced by Gavin Rossdale during Stryker‘s show on Los Angeles radio station KROQ, that BUSH is returning to the front line in 2010.
BUSH will perform is first live show in eight years as part of the Epicenter weekend in Fontana, September 25-26, joining EMINEM and KISS at the Golden State’s inland empire venue. Also in the fall, the first new studio album in nine years from BUSH will be released on Interscope, titled “Everything Always Now“. The CD was produced by Bob Rock, who also helmed Gavin‘s 2008 solo debut, “Wanderlust“, which spawned the crossover hit single “Love Remains the Same” (and whose credits include seminal work with METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, BON JOVI, AEROSMITH, and more).
It all came full circle for BUSH when Gavin previewed “Afterlife“, the first single pick from “Everything Always Now“, during the KROQ interview.
KROQ launched BUSH‘s career on the rock charts in late 1994, with the band’s debut hit single, “Everything Zen“, from BUSH‘s six-times-platinum-certified debut album “Sixteen Stone“. It was the maiden voyage of the British band that emerged two years earlier from Shepherd’s Bush and went on to sell more than 16 million albums in the U.S. and Canada alone: “Razorblade Suitcase” (1996), “Deconstructed” (1997), “The Science of Things” (1999), and “Golden State” (2001). Over the same period, BUSH compiled an amazing string of 14 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, including ten that hit the Top 5. Four of these became #1 hits that forever define the decade of the ’90s: “Comedown” (1995), “Glycerine” (1995), “Swallowed” (1996) and “The Chemicals Between Us” (1999).
