Bush to launch new album The Kingdom with virtual arena concert

Bush will launch their new album, “The Kingdom”, with a free, full production virtual arena concert on Saturday, July 18, the day after the project hits stores.

First previewed with the lead single, “Bullet Holes”, and the follow-up, “Flowers On A Grave”, the livestream event will give fans the opportunity to see and hear more new music from the set alongside classic tracks in an arena environment.

Scheduled to begin July 18 at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT via BushOfficial.com, 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.

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.

Following the livestream, 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.
