Canadian prog rock legends Rush, not content with the overwhelming success of their recently released album Clockwork Angels, their first new album for five years, have got some more things in the pipeline for their fans and prog lovers everywhere. Firstly, the band have decided to release a single from Clockwork Angels. The track to be released will be “The Wreckers” and will be available as a single on October 1st 2012.

Anderson is a long time friend of Rush member Neil Peart and the book promises to be an exciting journey into an alternate world that has stemmed from Rush’s music.
