(Prog) Rush are to be the recipients of another humanitarian award. Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart were awarded the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award in 2015 for their work with charities.

And they'll add another honor to the list on April 20, 2017, when they'll pick up the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award at the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards ceremony in Toronto.

The accolade is given to outstanding Canadian artists who've contributed to social activism and supported humanitarian causes. Rush say in a statement that they are "incredibly honored" and add: "The depth of Allan and Gary Slaight's generosity, consideration and benevolence has no measure. We will strive to carry forward their spirit of charity and goodwill." Read more here.
