Since releasing its self-titled debut album in 1974, Rush has been universally regarded as one of the most inventive and exciting groups in rock, famed for Lee, Lifeson, and Peart’s virtuoso musicianship, epic soundscapes, and dramatic lyricism. The band’s extraordinary body of work – which includes such acclaimed works as 1976’s “2112,” 1981’s “MOVING PICTURES,” 1996’s “TEST FOR ECHO,” and 2002’s “VAPOR TRAILS” – has achieved worldwide sales exceeding 35 million units.
“It’s hard to describe the new album. 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.” – Geddy Lee (Revolver Magazine)
Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – will trumpet the release of “SNAKES & ARROWS” with the announcement of a world tour, including six UK arena dates – the band’s first since 2004’s “An Evening with Rush: 30th Anniversary Tour.”
