    Super excited for this. First studio album in over 5 years! I was a huge fan of Snakes and Arrows, in fact thought it was the best album they have put out since i have become a fan, around 1990. Loved the feel of that record and its sound, it felt and sounded like older Rush, progressive and big. Nick Raskulinecz, who produced S&A as well as this new album "gets it" and i think he pulling some of the best stuff out the trio in a long time. Here is some info on and a "teaser" for the new album.....

    I am a big Rush fan although I dont like anything after Signals with the exception of Snakes and Arrows which was pretty good for a bunch of old folks :p. That new song sounds pretty good, I will surely download it.

    been a fan since 82 :juggalo:

    I saw a documentary recently on TV and it was pretty fascinating, especially the dynamics within the band

    Snakes and Arrows was my favorite release since i became a fan. It sounded most like the old school RUSH i had only heard on tape and CD. This really sounds like it is cut from the same cloth.

    YOu probably saw Beyond The Lighted Stage.

    Met 'em in Grandma's Bar in Billings during the Signals Tour, two perfectly nice guys, hangin out with a couple of roadies listening to the band, had a toast with Alex at the end of the night. Great concert!

    Yep thats the one. Growing up in the 70's/80's you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing Tom Sawyer, Spirit of the Radio etc constantly.

    Seemed to totally miss this before. That is Awesome. There is a great article written by peart where he talks about visiting specific places when he is in Ohio. I thought about trying to go there on the days around shows in cleveland and hoping to run into him! Here is a link to the article if anyone cares!

    Took my son to his first concert back in 08, when he was 8. Had 6th row seats. During the encore, Geddy walks up to edge of stage where we were and looks right at my boy and waves. Everyone around us was high fiving him. Great memory for him. Taking him tomhis 2nd Rush show this October, a week after his birthday. He is going to be psyched.
