RUSH To Begin Work On New Album In The Fall

RUSH frontman Geddy Lee has reportedly announced that he will begin work on the group's next studio album in the fall, according to New Jersey rock station WDHA-FM (105.5). Citing 2005 as a "family year," Lee was hoping to get bored enough over the summer in preparation for the rigors of recording a new CD. He also stated that he hoped to begin the new disc sometime "after the [baseball] World Series."

RUSH's most recent release was the "Feedback" EP, a collection of covers of classics popularized by THE WHO, CREAM, BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD and THE YARDBIRDS.

"Feedback" was RUSH's first studio release since 2002's "Vapor Trails" which debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and has sold less than 350,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

RUSH commemorated their 30th anniversary year in 2004 by playing dates across North America, as well as in Europe, where they had not performed live in more than a decade.
