Cassandra Szklarski of the Canadian Press reports:
Canadian rock icons RUSH are working on a collection of new songs based on Neil Peart's reflections on faith, the drummer said Thursday from his home in Los Angeles.

Peart said he, high-pitched singer Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson spent much of this year crafting the power trio's first slate of new material since 2004's "Vapor Trails" and expect to begin recording in November for an album release early next year.

Peart revealed few details about the record, except to say that reflections on faith emerged as a clear theme from the very beginning.

"I tried hard to look at it as a subject — what's good about it — and tried to balance that against what I saw as not being a good thing," said Peart, noting his experience as a Canadian living in the United States for the past six years has given him a unique perspective on world events.

"All we're seeing, especially in the world today, is a very malevolent kind of faith, in fundamentalism of all kinds, on both sides. One of the lines I use in the new songs equates Middle East and Middle West, because this stuff is going on in both localities, although both would probably be insulted by the comparison."

Peart said much of the new material was hashed out long distance, with him exchanging lyrics from Los Angeles for the song sketches of Lee and Lifeson, who both live in Toronto.

The Latest News....
 Stuart and I successfully came through our reacquaintance with the duo stage in the five UK shows we've just completed. All very enjoyable; several tunes which we haven't played for some time made reappearances and a conscious decision to go for delicacy rather than bombast produced some interesting versions.

Even though the new CD ("Singularity") is on the verge of release we didn't play any songs from it in these shows and this may well also be the case in the upcoming European shows. A downside of the sparkling new all-action digital age is, of course, that the minute anything is done in public some recording of it is likely to make its way out into cyberspace. I'd rather that these songs were heard for the first time in their recorded context rather than a live one so I guess that precludes giving them an airing yet.

As I say, "Singularity" will be out soon and a newsletter will coincide with its release. In that newsletter I may or may not expand upon the VdGG statement below. In the meantime, since we're anxious both to express our excitement about and enthusiasm for new work in prospect and also to avoid any inflammatory stuff of a grumpy-old-men-imploding nature here are the bare bones....     see below

Salem Hill DVD

Salem HIll

The band has been quiet. Granted. We have fairly good reasons (see below), but we're back and back on track! Many things have been happening on the SH front. Sadly, the things have remained behind the scenes due to various reasons (see below again). First of all, we are nearing completion of the Hillionaire's Weekend DVD. We'll be calling this beast "Mystery Loves Company". Our plan is release the disc in October 2006. We're in the last stages of editing the video. If all goes well, this should be a 5.1 Surround release, complete with lots of bonus features. A new interview, cuts from the Hillionaire's Weekend acoustic set, and other exciting things.

Many a fine folk have been asking about what the horizon holds for the band. Our plans entail quite a few things in the next 12 months. We're hoping for at least a new album. But--get this--there's a possibility of three new albums before the end of 2007. You read that right...THREE! How can this tortoise-like band boast THREE albums in such a short time? (See below...again.) We're back and we're on fire for the next chapter of Salem Hill!

The past 10 months have been a strange time for the band...well...mostly for Mr. Groves. He launched a new business and with his wife of 18 years, Jaynie, he built his dream house. Good news: He's got his dream house, complete with a 1200 square foot recording studio. So England Recording Studios is now much closer (down a flight of stairs, as a matter of fact). The bad news: Casa de la Groves is in the country. Miles from most things, including DSL. So he spent months in limbo trying to secure a decent Internet provider. Coupled with the move, were two untimely failures--one on the Salem Hill website and one from the merchant bank which handles SH credit card orders. So although there are still some lingering effects of the past month's upheaval, we are assured that things are again well. Most importantly is the fact that Mr. Groves assures us that with a studio at his beck and call 24/7, projects will no longer languish for months at a time but will see the light they deserve. Cool stuff!
