Bush are now settled into a new format, they’ve released an album, the Sea Of Memories, which is going down well both in the press and with fans on tour. Now that there is a sense of permanence in the group, the future looks to be a little rosier than the in-fighting and reticence reported when the band’s reformation was announced early last year. ”The show in Luxembourg was great, we were well received it was a good crowd – a nice big crowd, we had a great time,” says the laid back Corey Britz of their recent stop over at den Atelier.
Bush’s label earMUSIC claim that the band have had to spend a lot of time on the road touring new album Sea Of Memories, and, as a result Corey has not seen many hotel rooms. Thankfully we get to speak to him, finally, during some downtime and the one time session player with The Calling has a frog in his throat and an elephant in the room. Being on tour ”can drive you crazy” says the charismatic axeman, but we all have a good time on the bus, hanging out and doing whatnot.” The whatnot in question may explain Corey’s rougher vocal edge, though he explains ”I do a lot of the backing vocals and we’ve had a lot of shows in a row, so you know, I’m just feelin’ the pain a little bit.”

There is the unspoken trend that tours tend to blur, Corey (pictured far left), though, enjoys the promotion slog; ”every show is standing up to the last one, you know what I mean. Each show has it’s own little something, little quirks, that I am really enjoying,” coming to Europe seems to have resonated too, he continues, ”It’s really fun going from city to city, especially in Europe – to places we don’t play an awful lot, and seeing the different crowds and the different reactions. We had a lot of fun in Vienna, and I had a lot of fun in Luxembourg cause I had a bunch of close friends, who live in Germany, come to see us.”
Corey’s musical past, not the Julie Andrews kind, was of a session musician for hire. When a band needed someone to come in and get the bass part licked, Corey was their man. He had a stint with The Calling for a while, but was never really a full member – a good thing in my mind – it was through a session contract that Corey first met one Gavin Rossdale. ”A few years back, when Gavin was working on The Wanderlust, his solo record, I was hired for studio work. We became good friends and when he deiced to get Bush back together, he needed to fill the bass spot and, well, he called me up.”
Announced last week, The #1 hit by Bush, The Sound Of Winter, is the official theme song for the 2011-12 Winter Dew Tour. see more info below..
