Bush Confirms Club Gig; Settlement Looming In Label Dispute

After spending a long time out of the spotlight, Bush will resurface with a small club show in California on June 10.

A spokesperson for the band's official fan club, Ambush, first told MTV News that the group was set to play a gig for its fans at the Glass House in Pomona next Thursday. The band's publicist confirmed to MTV News that the Glass House show is a warm-up for an appearance the following day at a large Radio & Records music industry convention in Los Angeles. Bush is scheduled to play a number of festivals in Europe in June as well.

Also in the works is a pair of dates at Irving Plaza in New York City just prior to Bush's appearance at Woodstock '99 in July, though at press time, the publicist could not confirm the shows had been scheduled.

Although the group's publicist cautions that nothing is written in stone, a spokesperson for the band's management company confirms that Bush's long-awaited new album, "The Science of Things," is likely to be out in September

on the Trauma label and that the first single is tentatively slated to be "Jesus Online." A treatment for a video is said to be making the rounds of the appropriate executive offices.

Bush has been in litigation with Trauma, which has caused the now-completed record to collect cobwebs. The group, unhappy with its contract, reportedly failed to deliver the album as scheduled and was sued by Trauma in March of this year. Both the management spokesperson and the band's publicist confirmed that the dispute is now close to resolved.
