The Winter Dew Tour has announced their 2011-12 theme song will be smash hit "The Sound of Winter" by multi-platinum rock band BUSH. The Winter Dew Tour features the world's top freeskiers and snowboarders competing in superpipe and slopestyle, collecting top podium finishes over the season's three stops to win the Dew Cup. With its driving beat and strong emotion,"The Sound of Winter" perfectly captures the feel of heavy competition and will serve as a fitting musical backdrop to the efforts of athletes as they push the limits of gravity with technical expertise on the mountain.
Opening and closing each NBC broadcast of this season's Winter Dew Tour, "The Sound of Winter" will be featured in 25 broadcast hours, giving the contests an audible frame for a large live audience. The Dew Tour's overseas broadcast partners will also use the song, reaching 54 countries around the globe.
BUSH recently made rock radio history with "The Sound of Winter" by becoming the first band ever to hit No. 1 at Alternative Radio with a self-released single. "The Sound Of Winter" appears on the group's new album THE SEA OF MEMORIES, which is the first Bush disc to be released via the band's own imprint, Zuma Rock Records (through an exclusive partnership with eOne Music).
"The Sound of Winter" also holds the distinction of being the reunited group's first No. 1 single since 1999's chart-topping hit, "The Chemicals Between Us."
Over the course of their remarkable career, Bush has sold more than 16 million albums in the U.S. and Canada alone. They've also compiled an amazing string of 15 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, including 11 that hit the Top 5. Five of these became No. 1 hits: "Comedown," "Glycerine," "Swallowed," "The Chemicals Between Us" and now "The Sound of Winter." For more info, please visit www.bushofficial.com
Bush recently wrapped a sold-out headlining run of North America and are currently touring overseas.
