RUSH Frontman Says He Is Reponsible For Getting Writing And Recording Process In Motion

Launch Radio Networks reports: RUSH released its 18th studio album on Tuesday (May 1), titled "Snakes & Arrows". This is the first collection of all-new RUSH material since 2002's "Vapor Trails", and bassist/singer Geddy Lee told Launch that he's the one who usually gets the writing and recording process in motion. "I think it's usually me, because I have more Jewish guilt than the other guys do," he said. "And even though I have no problem completely disregarding my responsibilities for at least a year, after a year and a couple of months I start feeling a bit like I should really probably do something that's less indulgent than collecting wine or going to ball games or playing tennis."

An enhanced version of "Snakes & Arrows" will be released on MVI disc on June 5. It will come with high-resolution audio, 5.1 Surround Sound, and a 43-minute documentary on the making of the album, titled "Rush: The Game Of Snakes & Arrows".

"Far Cry" is the first single from the album.

RUSH will begin a North American tour in support of "Snakes & Arrows" on June 13 in Atlanta, wrapping up on September 22 in Toronto, Canada.
