Rush fans...the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived. Not quite like clockwork, but Clockwork Angels is finally and definitely headed your way. The new album, on Anthem/Roadrunner and produced by Nick Raskulinecz (who's worked with Foo Fighters and Deftones) is slated to hit stores June 12. In grand Rush style, this is a concept disc, with a "steampunk" theme wrapped around the familiar trope of a young man chasing a dream in a confusing world. There'll be an accompanying novel (written by Neal Peart in collaboration with sci-fi superstar and prog megafan Kevin J. Anderson.
Can't quite wait for June 12? The first single, "Headlong Flight" will debut April 19th. And a tour will follow (announcement soon).
We'll of course be on the case here at S+V.
