What better way for a band to celebrate its twentieth anniversary than with a brand new album, and that is exactly what Norwegian Jazz veterans Bushman’s Revenge are planning to do, courtesy of Is it Jazz? Records.
“All The Better For Seeing You” is the album that will markthis momentous occasion, and it promises to be a memorable ride because with Bushman’s Revenge all the energy of Rock is given free rein thanks to the band’s Jazz elements.
With artwork by Per Spjøtvold, track listing for “All The Better For Seeing You” is as follows:
- Halvannen Time – an hour and ahalf, more than enough
- Last Cup Of Zorro
- Hollowed Be Thy Fame
- Stolen From a Blind Monkey
- Raptus Norvegicus
- Takk For Seg
“All The Better For Seeing You,” which will be Bushman’s Revenge‘s eleventh full-length album, will be released on the 8th September in CD, Digital and Green Vinyl formats, and is available to pre-order now from:

Obviously, in the two decades since its inception in 2003, Bushman’s Revenge‘s lineup of Even Helte Hermansenon on Guitar, Rune Nergaard on Bass and Gard Nilssen on Drums, has had ample timeto develop a distinctive sound. It could even be said that, by exploring and experimenting with different sounds and directions, Bushman’s Revenge has, infact, created a genre all of its own.
In addition to the ten previously released albums, Bushman’s Revenge also has 300+ live performances under its belt, and together these two facts have earned the band a fearsome reputation amongst fans and critics alike, both for its studio output as well as its stage presence.
And, with the album-led 20th Anniversary celebrations kicking off in earnest, fans will be able to witness for themselves the power of Bushman’s Revenge on stage when the band hits the road on their 20th Annivarsary “All The Better For SeeingYou” Tour.
