More Details on New Rush Album & A Sample

April 13th, 2012

The new Rush album, Clockwork Angels, is due 12 June. According to the band’s website, Neil Peart has gone all steampunk.

Lyrically, “CLOCKWORK ANGELS” chronicles a young man’s quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, an exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The novelization of “CLOCKWORK ANGELS” is being written by science fiction writer Kevin J. Anderson in collaboration with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.

A brief sample from the lead single, “Headlong Flight”, is available. Sounds very old school with a nod to “Bastille Day”.
