Darren Redick of U.K. digital radio station Planet Rock conducted an interview with guitarist Alex Lifeson of Canadian rock legends RUSH via phone this morning (Friday, November 18). Lifeson was calling from RUSH‘s home base of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where the band is working on its 20th studio album, “Clockwork Angels”. The 10-minute chat can now be streamed using the audio player below.
RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee recently spoke to The Plain Dealer about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s upcoming 20th studio album, “Clockwork Angels”, for which a release date has not yet been set.
“We’ve got about seven songs written,” Lee said. He added, “When you hear the first two songs [‘BU2B’ and ‘Caravan’], which we’re playing live now, they definitely have a heavier sound. It’s the heavier side of RUSH in the early going. But when I think of all the songs that we’ve written already, there’s quite a lot of diversity there. I think — I hope — RUSH fans will like it. We’re certainly going to work hard to make it a great record, as we always try.”
