The Press Release:
On May 29th, UMe/Mercury/Anthem label group continues its extensive Rush 40th anniversary album series with a new, imagination-capturing expanded edition of all the magic music that comprises the band’s remarkable 1980 release, Permanent Waves.

Permanent Waves, Rush’s seventh studio album, was originally released in January 1980, and its forward-thinking music signaled a new direction for the Canadian band as it entered a new decade. The six songs encompassing the album encapsulated the breadth of Rush’s formidable progressive chops meshed with its knack for creating radio-friendly arrangements, all elements that were embedded within the grooves of their previous album, 1978’s widely acclaimed Hemispheres. Permanent Waves also signified Rush’s first of many recording sessions at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, which was at one point nicknamed the trio’s own personal Abbey Road recording studio.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I love Rush quite a bit, I am not yet 100% sure that I am seeing this film with the rest of the legions. I’m still pretty tired from rocking out last night with “The Hottest Band In The World – KISS!!!” and if you know how much that band means to me you will understand. It’s pretty exciting to find the legendary Rush showcased on the big screen and this will very likely see release as a must have Blu-ray, DVD or Digital release once its available to the public. I’ll close up now but before I do I wonder who among the readership is planning on seeing this tonight. Feel free to chime in down below in the comments section no matter where you are seeing it. I’d love to hear from you all.
