Walmart.com is currently offering clips of all 13 tracks that will appear on RUSH's new album, "Snakes & Arrows". Check them out at this location.While the CD release of "Snakes & Arrows" is set for May 1, the much-anticipated DVD Album limited edition will be available June 5. This format is rumored to be a 25,000 copy limited edition, and will include a special 26-page booklet. Not to be confused with the DualDisc format, this will be a fully interactive DVD, and will include the album in 5.1 Surround Sound, as well as a 43-minute "making of" video, cell-phone ringtones, wallpapers, text, and other digital extras that can only be accessed via computer, including the ability to extract the album tracks onto the users computer for use in MP3 players, etc. The limited edition will retail in the area of $24, while the CD version will be around $12. In addition to the CD and limited edition offered elsewhere, Wal-Mart is offering a special CD version of "Snakes & Arrows" which will come with an "exclusive video download." This package will include a video clip from the upcoming VH1 special on RUSH, which is said to consist of Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson's appearance on XM Radio's "Artist Confidential" from 2004. The video is obtainable via a special code which is included either in the Wal-Mart packaging or embedded in the CD itself, which allows the purchaser to download the video. Note: This video will NOT include the acoustic performances of "Heart Full of Soul" and "Resist", which were a part of the original audio broadcast which aired on XM Radio in October 2004. In other news, RUSH fan site RushIsABand.com has uploaded photos of Neil Peart's new "Snakes & Arrows" drumkit, taken this past Friday (April 20) as it was being boxed and shipped at the DW Drums factory.
