Bush has just released "The Science of Things," its first new album in three years. The band's front man, Gavin Rossdale, told MTV News that the album combines Bush's familiar post-grunge sound with more experimental electronic styles. "I like the way they all fit together," Rossdale said. "And they fit together pretty good. Like, we didn't know how it would be, but it was a good surprise, seeing how they all fit together good."
Rossdale is also sporting a new look: He has dyed his hair bright red. "The rest of me was on fire, so it seemed silly not to follow suit," Rossdale said. . .
