This is so sad.
One of the MOST influential trippy-rock bands of the Twentieth Century will accompany the release of Clockwork Angels - their first studio album in five years - with a North American Fall/Winter Tour!
Rush is known for philosophical lyrics and their penchant for all things science fiction and fantasy, AND they were one of the first bands to heavily use synthesizers in their sound.
Many bands venerate the canadian trio, including Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, and Primus, and we have always LOVED ourselves a rush of Rush!!
Their 2012 tour blasts off on Sept 7th in Manchester, N.H. and will conclude in Houston.
What a rare performance to see!
