Clockwork Angels

Prog rock-lovers rejoice - the Canadian trio is back with Clockwork Angels, their twentieth (!!) studio release. All the requisite Rush-isms are here: sprawling musical passages, heavy metal interludes, themes of fantasy and dreams, and solos abound. Lyrically, the story revolves around anarchists, pirates, lost cities, and a watchmaker, in full steampunk fashion. It was also announced that there would be a novelization of Clockwork Angels, written by sci-fi author Kevin J. Anderson, a personal friend of drummer Neil Peart.

The band is prepping for a massive worldwide Clockwork Angels Tour that will stretch into mid-2013. To see Rush live, go to http://www.rush.com/clockworkangelstour.php for dates.
