Official RUSH Stamp Unveiled By Canada Post

Just in time for the celebration of Canadian music and musicians at the JUNO awards next week, Canada Post has given Canadians a preview of this edition of the Canadian Recording Artist stamp series, to be released in July, featuring for the first time, Canadian bands. RUSH, BEAU DOMMAGE, THE GUESS WHO and THE TRAGICALLY HIP will be spotlighted in this fourth issue in a series created to honor musical legends.

"This year's series features Canadian bands that have shaped the music industry in Canada," says Jim Phillips, Director of Stamp Services for Canada Post. "Each band has achieved national acclaim, along with international radio airtime and extensive tours."

The Canadian Recording Artists stamp series will be available from Canada Post retail outlets starting July 19 or online at canadapost.ca/shop.

RUSH is among the 2013 inductees to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held tonight (Thursday, April 18) at L.A.'s Nokia Theater. A truncated version of the evening's events will air on HBO on May 18.
