Back in early March, Gavin Rossdale and alt/rock hitmakers Bush announced a new album, The Kingdom.

The record is coming out this Friday, July 17, and was previewed with the lead single “Flowers on a Grave”:

When Bush announced the new album, the news was tied to a big tour plan with Breaking Benjamin — but that tour was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the summer tour not launching this week as originally planned, Bush will instead stage a full production arena concert this Saturday, July 18, streaming the show for free online to celebrate the new record. The show will go live at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT. at this link.

More details, per a press release:

The concert will be produced by FanTracks, a new livestreaming and fan engagement platform. A departure from models that digitally mimic traditional ticketing approaches, FanTracks offers music lovers access to high-quality, carefully curated and professionally produced live shows as part of a low-fee subscription, sharing the revenue with artists. Its proprietary technology creates a new world of virtual music and fan experiences, from a range of group chat modes, to hosted “hang out” spaces and parties, to interactive features that bring musicians and music lovers together. As one of their free debut launch events, FanTracks have promised to deliver a groundbreaking livestream experience to BUSH fans around the world. 

During the show, viewers will be able to purchase The Kingdom at a special discounted price (digital version: $5.99, physical CD: $8.99 plus shipping and handling) and will also receive two exclusive non-album bonus tracks. Fifty cents from each record sold during the livestream will be donated to When We All Vote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization on a mission to increase participation in every election. BUSH will match the total donated by fans to help the cause.

Additionally, iHeartMedia will broadcast a 30-minute “iHeartRadio Album Release Special with BUSH” featuring a performance from the group on July 24. The audio will air on iHeartRadio’s Rock stations and select Alternative stations across the country at 8pm local time, and digitally on Rock Nation and Alternative Radio at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT.
