"Warm Machine" is the second single from British grunge band Bush's third album The Science of Things. The song was followed by "Letting the Cables Sleep", which proved to be a bigger hit than "Warm Machine."

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Russel Thomas and Steve Jones on 18 December 1999. The live footage is taken from a show which took place at the Bayfront Amphitheratre in Miami, Florida on 18 December, while the sections of the video with the band playing on a dark stage were filmed in a London studio. The song was actually played twice at the Miami show.[1]

Commercial performance[edit]

Although the song was not as successful as the other singles from "The Science of Things", only managing to reach #38 on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart and #16 on the U.S. Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, the song became the band's third most successful song in their native Britain (behind Swallowed and Greedy Fly) reaching #45 on the UK Singles Chart.
