In a recent interview with Revolver magazine (web site), RUSH vocalist/bassist Geddy Lee stated about the upcoming CD, "It's hard to describe. It's big, it's bold, and I think it's some of the best work we've done in years. I'm really pleased with the quality of the songs, and there's lots of playing on it."
"Snakes & Arrows" promises to be the most organic-sounding RUSH effort in decades, having been influenced by their experience of making "Feedback", the band's 2004 EP of classic-rock covers.
"Playing those songs that we loved and grew up on, I think it helped us remember how sometimes it's the simplicity or the directness of an arrangement that really makes a great song," Lee told Revolver. "And the other thing is, we played all together in the studio for a lot of the 'Feedback' stuff. That's something that a lot of producers had been pushing us to do for a while but which we hadn't done in years. It was great to turn off the click and just play — you know, not worry so much about being so, quote, metronomic — and that definitely carried over into this record."
Superb! I can't wait to see them on the next European Tour, I'll give you all 10-1 odds that they're playing Ireland though.
i confess i am a bit of a rawk fan when it comes to RUSH.
saw them in stadia in the States and the drumming of Neil Peart was astonishing; as was the other members.
if they hit these shores i encourage attendance. awesome fun live show.
Neil is the best drummer in the world by miles. I have one of his wee Turkish caps too, must wear it on stage sometime for the craic
Oh god how I love Rush. I cannot wait to see them again!
