Gavin Rossdale catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about The Art of Survival and why it ended up being one of Bush’s heaviest albums.

The songwriter talks Coldplay, The Mars Volta, and Leonard Cohen, as well as his love of using religious iconography in his lyrics (and how it pissed off Gwen Stefani). Elsewhere, Rossdale also touches on being a reader of Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins, his hopes of being in the just-announced Constantine 2, and why he says that Nicholas Cage is “the best actor in the world.”
