The video follows Howard Stern’s worldwide premiere of “The Only Way Out,” USA Today’s online premiere of “The Only Way Out” and Billboard’s recent premiere of the album’s title track, “Man On The Run.” On Monday, October 6th, Elle.com will premiere another new track, “Loneliness Is A Killer.”
All three songs appear on BUSH’s upcoming album Man On The Run, due out October 21 on Zuma Rock Records/RAL. BUSH (vocalist/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, guitarist Chris Traynor, bassist Corey Britz and drummer Robin Goodridge) recorded their 6th studio album with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Mastodon, Deftones, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains) at Studio 606, the Northridge, CA-based studio owned by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Rossdale explained the album title: “When you first begin writing songs, you see the world and your time as infinite, because that’s the nature of being young. As you get older, you see it as chapters. The title ‘Man on the Run’ is meant as a universal take on a slice of my life and the people I come across. It just seems that the doors are closing and everyone is trying to figure out their way. It’s the most universal title we’ve ever had.”
Fans can catch Rossdale serving as a guest mentor to “Team Gwen” on this season of the hit NBC series, “The Voice.” The first episode with Rossdale airs October 13th.
BUSH has also teamed with PledgeMusic for a special campaign that offers fans a chance to take a behind-the-scenes look at the new album, along with a number of Pledge exclusives including limited-edition vinyl, hand-written lyrics, pre-order opportunities and more.

Man On The Run is the follow-up to 2011’s The Sea Of Memories, which was BUSH’s first release in 10 years. That album saw them return to the top of the charts in grand style, with lead single “The Sound of Winter” making rock radio history as the first self-released song ever to hit No. 1 at Alternative Rock radio (where it stayed for six consecutive weeks).
Over the course of their remarkable career, BUSH has sold close to 20 million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. They’ve also compiled an amazing string of 17 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, including 11 that hit the Top 5, six of which shot to No. 1: “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter.”
2014 marks the 20th anniversary of BUSH’s debut album Sixteen Stone, which hit No. 4 on The Billboard 200and included the No. 1 hits “Comedown,” “Glycerine” and “Machinehead,” as well as fan favorites “Everything Zen” and “Little Things.”
