Anthem/Atlantic recording group Rush
have announced early details of their upcoming new album, Snakes & Arrows Live
. The 2-CD live set will arrive in stores on April 8th.
"Snakes & Arrows Live" was recorded last October at the Netherlands' Ahoy Rotterdam arena during the renowned rock trio's lengthy world tour, and mixed by frequent collaborator Richard Chycki (Aerosmith
, Mick Jagger
). The five month trek celebrated Rush's acclaimed 2007 studio release, "Snakes & Arrows," which includes the Grammy Award-nominated track, "Malignant Narcissism."
The new album features an explosive live rendition of "Workin' Them Angels." The track - the original version of which can be found on "Snakes & Arrows" - will impact at Rock radio outlets nationwide on March 10th.
Rush - Geddy Lee
, Alex Lifeson
, and Neil Peart
- will simultaneously release the new live CD with another four months of concert dates. This extended schedule will see the band traveling North America through mid-July. Produced by Live Nation Global Touring and SRO/Anthem, the 2008 leg of the "Snakes & Arrows Live Tour" will take off on April 11th at San Juan's Coliseo de Puerto Rico - Rush's first-ever concert appearance in Puerto Rico. Among the highlights of the 45-city itinerary will be highly anticipated stops in a number of markets where the band has not performed in more than a decade, including Orlando, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Reno, Moline, Boise, Austin, Jacksonville, and Winnipeg.
Due to popular demand, Rush has added a second night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, performing on May 8th. Fan club presale for the show will start on Tuesday, February 26, with the remaining tickets becoming available to the public on Saturday, March 1 (details for both presale and public sale at www.rush.com ).
