It promotes their latest album, Clockwork Angels, the trio’s first new collection of original material in more than five years.
The album tells the story of a young man’s quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy, as he attempts to follow his dreams.
It’s being turned into a book by science fiction writer Kevin J Anderson in collaboration with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.
The band also features bassist, keyboardist and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, plus guitarist and backing vocalist Alex Lifeson,
Formed in 1968, Rush are estimated to have sold over 40 million albums.
Since the release of the their self-titled debut album in March 1974, the band has become known for their musicianship, complex compositions and eclectic lyrical motifs drawing heavily on science fiction, fantasy and philosophy. They began with blues-inspired heavy metal, then encompassed hard rock, progressive rock, and a period with heavy use of synthesizers.
