RUSH is currently working on its 20th studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz (co-producer of RUSH's 2007 CD, "Snakes & Arrows") in Nashville.

RUSH has announced the details of the "Time Machine Tour", which will kick off on June 29 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and finish on October 2 in West Palm Beach, Florida, hitting a total of 37 cities. The centerpiece of the trek will be the band's first-ever performance of its classic 1981 album "Moving Pictures" in its entirety. The group will also play other beloved tracks from its catalog as well as new songs that the band has been working on.

This will be RUSH's first road trip since touring extensively behind its 2007 studio album, "Snakes & Arrows".

"Moving Pictures", RUSH's eighth studio album, is their most successful release, with four million copies sold in the U.S. It features the hits "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight", as well as live favorites like "YYZ" and "Red Barchetta".
