As [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rush[/lastfm] prepares to re-launch their “Time Machine” tour this year, guitarist Alex Lifeson spilled some details on the newest album from the band later this year.
He said that he and Geddy Lee have already begun the writing process and will work hard to get the next album out within the next 12 months.
“We’ll get through the Christmas holidays and start writing through January and February. We only have two or three more songs that we feel we need for the album,” he said.
“So we can start reworking the material and get it in great shape. Then we’ll prepare for the tour in March, finish in July, take the summer off then start work in earnest in September.”
So the guys will be quite busy throughout this year, with plenty of dates already scheduled, then it sounds like they’ll try to get their next album out just in time for the holidays.
They’ve only scheduled UK dates at this point, so no word yet on when they’ll return to the TD Garden.
