Institute Biography

The Alternative-Rock band Institute was formed in 2005 by former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale; his last record with the British act was 2001's "Golden State" and the band quietly dissolved shortly after guitarist Nigel Pulsford announced his intention to stop touring; in 2002 Rossdale recorded, as a solo artist, the single "Adrenaline" for the soundtrack to the movie "XXX".

Institute, in which the rocker was backed by ex-Helmet guitarist Chris Traynor, bassist Cache Tolman and drummer Charlie Walker, issued its debut abum in September 2005 on Interscope Records; the Helmet's main-man Page Hamilton produced "Distort Yourself" peaked at #81 on The Billboard Top 200 Albums list, led by the single "Bullet-Proof Skin" which hit #26 on both Modern and Mainstream Rock charts.
