Press Release: Rush Announces Clockwork Angels Tour

Here's the official press release for the Clockwork Angels tour.

Rush Announces Clockwork Angels Tour -- LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Here's an excerpt:

Drummer and lyricist Neil Peart explained, "In late 2011, my drum teacher Freddie Gruber, towards the end of his long and adventurous 84 years, was reminiscing among friends and former students. Often he would shake his head and say, 'I had quite a ride. I wish I could do it all again.' That is not a feeling I have ever shared about the past -- I remain glad that I don't have to do it all again. While working on the lyrics for 'Headlong Flight,' the last song written for Clockwork Angels, I tried to summarize my character's life and adventures. My own ambivalence colored the verses, while Freddie's words inspired the chorus 'I wish that I could live it all again.'"

Thanks to Rushisaband for the head's up.
