The world’s premier orchestral rock/metal band and Jive recording artist, Apocalyptica, will return to the U.S. for 18 shows starting November 25h in Orlando, Florida at House Of Blues and concluding in Corpus Christi, Texas on December 18th at the House Of Rock.
The Helsinki, Finland based band recently finished their international sold-out summer tour supporting the release of their most recent album, 7th Symphony. Apocalyptica wrapped up their co-headlining U.S. tour, which included stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and other major U.S. cities. The New York Post declared “you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen long-haired dudes headbanging while playing classical cellos.” Apocalyptica now returns to continue to support the release of their seventh album 7th Symphony. The current single “End of Me” (click to listen), featuring guest vocals by Gavin Rossdale of Bush, is a Top 5 smash on the Active Rock Radio chart. 7th Symphony also features stellar guest lineup Brent Smith of Shinedown, Lacey Mosley of Flyleaf and Joe Duplantier of French rock band Gojira and Dave Lombardo of Slayer.

Apocalyptica‘s new album, 7th Symphony will be released August 24th through Jive Recods. The first single off the album is the song “End of Me” which features lead vocals from Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. The brand new video for the track is being premiered on Vevo.com here.
You can pre-order your copy of 7th Symphony at Amazon.com here as well.
7th Symphony was produced by Joe Barresi (Coheed and Cambria, Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion), and is scheduled for release August 24. The album will feature eight instrumentals plus four tracks with guest vocals including the first single “End Of Me” featuring lead vocals by Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale. In addition, producer Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, Creed, My Chemical Romance) returns for production duties on two tracks on the forthcoming album.
The conservatory-trained musicians of Apocalyptica(three of whom are graduates of the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki) started playing Metallica covers in 1993 and in 1996 they released their critically acclaimed debut Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. But it was 2007′s Worlds Collidethat broke the band into an international phenomenon. The disc featured numerous guest stars. Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor appeared on “I’m Not Jesus,” Lacuna Coil‘s Cristina Scabbia sang on “S.O.S. (Anything But Love),” Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann performed on a cover of David Bowie and Brian Eno‘s “Helden” and Three Days Grace Singer Adam Gontier sang his heart out on “I Don’t Care.” “I Don’t Care” blasted Apocalyptica through the stratosphere, and peaked at number one on the Billboard rock chart. Apocalyptica promoted Worlds Collide with a world tour that included numerous stops in North America.

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).
