RUSH fan site RushIsABand.com posted a new photo of Neil Peart's drum tech Lorne Wheaton sitting down with Neil Peart's new "Snakes & Arrows" drum kit.Contrary to previous reports, RUSH has selected "Spindrift" as the second single from its latest album, "Snakes & Arrows". The song "The Larger Bowl", which was previously thought to have chosen as the new single, may be released as a third single this summer. The release date of the MVI (DVD Album) limited-edition version of "Snakes & Arrows" has been pushed back to June 26 due to "a handful of unfortunate yet unavoidable production delays," according to the band. As previously reported, the DVD version contains the entire album in 5.1 surround sound and a 43-minute video documentary on the making of the album. With a higher storage capacity than a standard CD, the Music Video Interactive Disc (MVI) contains new interactive features, including superior sound quality, a wide range of video features, and interactive digital content. MVI discs play in all standard DVD players, computers, and game consoles with DVD drives but do not play in conventional CD players. Digital music files are compatible with all MP3 devices. "Snakes & Arrows" will be released as a double-LP via Rhino on June 19. RUSH's 18th studio album, "Snakes & Arrows", debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart with sales of 93,000 copies. The disc, which has sold 150,000 copies in the U.S. since its May 1 release, is the first collection of all-new RUSH material since 2002's "Vapor Trails" and the 27th RUSH release to make the Billboard album chart. The band's chart peak was in 1993, when "Counterparts" debuted at No. 2.
