[lastfm]Rush[/lastfm] is working on their next album, ‘ Clockwork Angels’, due out spring 2011. Their current tour features performances of the 1980 album ‘Moving Pictures’  and after wrapping the tour the band plans to head straight to the studio while they are still in top form. 

Guitarist Alex Lifeson told Billboard.com “We’ve never afforded ourselves the luxury of coming off tour and then going straight into the studio when you’re in top playing form… we usually finish a tour and then we take some time off and we slowly get back into writing and then into the studio, recording. This time we’ll go straight back into the studio and continue recording and writing while we’re still in top form from the road.”

Lifeson says ‘Clockwork Angels’ is “a little more than halfway done.” Lifeson also says tracks “Caravan‘ and ‘BU2B‘ “are pretty heavy indications of where the record’s going… but there are a lot of different tonalities and soundscapes on the material that we’ve written so far, so I’m interested to see where we go on these next few songs.”

Rush hopes to finish recording during the fall.  

Rush fans can get their fix with “Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage,” which premieres on VH1, VH1 Classic and Palladia at 9 p.m. EST on June 26.

There are no current 2010 tour dates for Metro Detroit but check out the band’s next closest stops in Chicago, IL –  Columbus, OH – Ottawa, ON and Pittsburgh, PA at Rush.com
