New Rush Album Coming Soon

(Gibson) Rush bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee recently sat down with Rolling Stone and discussed the progress of the prog-rock legends' forthcoming album. Work is ongoing and he said he expects it to be released by early 2012.

"We're almost finished writing. We wound the machine back up about three weeks ago. After a sluggish start, we've had a very fruitful couple of weeks in terms of writing," he said. "I'm very pleased with the direction that the material has taken. And I think we have one or two more songs that we'd like to write, and then we'll start recording in earnest. "Hopefully we'll have all of the recording done before Christmas. Then we'll mix it sometime in the next year, and then get it out."

Lee also talked about the sound of the new record. "I think it's a little different than Snakes & Arrows," he said. "It's not finished so it's hard to say exactly what it will sound like in totality, but I think that the direction of 'Caravan' and 'BU2B' sort of points in the direction that we're going." more on this story
