An Evening with RushThursday, November 1st, 2012« view all past events
Rush has unveiled details of its highly anticipated, new album, CLOCKWORK ANGELS. This is the first new collection of original material in over five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner records. CLOCKWORK ANGELS, the bands 20th studio album, is in stores now.
The recording of CLOCKWORK ANGELS began in April 2010 with Grammy Award winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones) who also collaborated with the band on their last studio album, 2007s SNAKES & ARROWS. Rush co-produced both records. The first two songs, Caravan and BU2B, were completed during that first session at Nashvilles Blackbird studios and performed nightly during the wildly successful Time Machine Tour, which ran from June 2010 to June 2011. Work on CLOCKWORK ANGELS resumed in the fall of 2011 at Revolution Recording in Toronto after the tours finale, with additional strings (arranged by David Campbell) recorded at Hollywoods Ocean Way Studios earlier this year. Lyrically, CLOCKWORK ANGELS chronicles a young mans quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, an exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The novelization of CLOCKWORK ANGELS is being written by science fiction writer Kevin J. Anderson in collaboration with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. Rush will herald the release of CLOCKWORK ANGELS with a new single Headlong Flight landing at rock radio on April 19th.
