Rush’s 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels has earned rapturous accolades by fans and press alike since its release June 12th of last year.  Describing Clockwork Angels as “an extremely accomplished piece of music composed and performed absolutely flawlessly” by The Quietus; Q magazine called the taut songcraft “utterly engaging”; Rolling Stone declared “the power-trio interplay could put guys half their age in the burn ward”, while All Music Guide succinctly summed up “Clockwork Angels demonstrates why, after 36 years, Rush’s fan base continues to grow. Its musical athleticism and callisthenic discipline are equaled only by its relentless creative drive and its will to express it discipline are equaled only by its relentless creative drive and its will to express it discipline are equaled only by its relentless creative drive and its will to express it in a distinct musical language”; and The Guardian UK claimed, “Those who worship at the temple of Rush will be in raptures; for those who remain agnostic, there may well be enough here to justify a leap of faith.”

This year, to the delight of patient Rush fans worldwide, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame at the momentous ceremony in Los Angeles on April 18th.
