According to the latest Rush.com newsletter, Canadian rock legends RUSH will release a limited-edition CD single containing two songs from the band's upcoming album. No further details are currently available.
The band is currently working on their 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 just begun working on at a studio in Toronto.
Guitarist Alex Lifeson said in a statement, "We were off for a year and a half, and now it's just pouring. Everything is totally crazy and there's not a minute left in the day. We've got these half-dozen songs, and we'll probably go in the studio and work on a couple of them and see how it goes, perhaps release something — and I say perhaps — and then we plan on being on the road."
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".
Tickets for selected stops on the tour will go on sale April 16 and April 17, with other dates going on sale later. Check local listings for ticket sale information.
