Four years since the release of Bush's last record, former frontman Gavin Rossdale is once again stepping into the limelight with his new band, Institute. Their debut album 'Distort Yourself' will be released September 19th. While Rossdale has been quoted as saying that Bush are "on ice", he has avoided any temptation to go down the solo path and stayed true to his rock roots. The four piece is fronted by Rossdale and is completed by guitarist Chris Traynor (Bush, Helmet), bassist Cache Tolman (Rival Schools) and drummer Charlie Walker (Split Lip, Chamberlain). Musically, Distort Yourself sees Rossdale venturing into new territory and Institute announce their arrival with their first single Bullet-Proof Skin, which features a stop/start guitar riff behind Rossdale's distinctive gravel-coated vocals. He further demonstrates his ability to break the Bush writing mould with tracks like 'Boombox', and 'Information Age' shows Helmet's influence, through producer Page Hamilton.

Here is someone who has left us plenty of music already and although most of it was released under the name of his long term band Bush, and the latest under his personal name, this in between album released under the name of Institute - Distort Yourself is the strongest overall album to me. Once again, this is hard and heavy but it contains many beautiful full of light moments. It is one of my favorite albums of hard rock of the 21 century or however we decide to categorize it. This music definitely relates to the music of Bush but it is much more consistent for me, less concerned about the grunge sound, and it also contains more of the melodic sections which are so pronounced on Gavin's following album Wanderlust. Comparing Institute against Bush, I sense more of a clear vision here coming to us from the single source which I am attracted to. Heavy metal massive sound of bass and drums and Helmet-like guitar riffs mixed in with softer sections and vocal melody lines are blended on Distort Yourself real nicely and providing you don't mind walking into this definitely darker heavier landscape, you will get to experience a lot of sunshine, which might surprise you nicely. I guess that is why I am attracted to this album. There is good energy flowing from under its dark cloth. This album is fairly even without the songs of no appeal to me, as opposed to any of the Bush album.
If I was to pick one song I like best it would not be any of the strong front songs but song number 9. Ambulances is my favorite track of this album. I find its echoing keyboard and guitar passages hauntingly beautiful.Read more ›
Whatever it is Gavin Rossdale does and however he does it, produces an almost creamy svelt - like rock sound with beautiful harmonies and progressions within a song, punctuated by crunchy, toffee like sticky points of drum breaks and clashing guitars that demarcate the journey of each track. The whole album is well constructed without a filler track to be found.
Just like a dime bar gets stuck in your teeth, tracks on this album will get stuck in your head.
Lyrically, I cannot say Rossdale competes with Vedder or Cornell or even Taylor of the Cory variety, but the overall sound, impact and even resonance of a song can be felt and leaves a lasting memory.
As a fan of Bush through to Slipknot via Audioslave and other slightly darker sounds, this is an album that is melting itself into the CD player...
I am a huge fan of Bush and this album is amazing. I couldn't find a weak song in the whole album and it left me singing away.
Not the same as bush but if you liked Gavin Rossdales 'Adrenaline' from XXX then this album carries on with the same style.
its the best way to get an idea of there sound. All the tracks on
the album are awesome but a few tracks stand out straight away witch are. 'Wasteland' one of the slower songs and my favorite
on the album, 'information age' classic rossndale vocals, 'bulletproof skin' the opening track upbeat great song,
'ambulances' slow song with amazeing lyrics. I recommend
this album to any bush fan, and even if your not a bush fan this will make you want to buy all there albums. All in all a fantastic rock album and with each listen the albums greatness grows! buy it and you will not be dissapointed!
A must have album for rock lovers.
