Rush Drummer Confirms The Band Are Working On New Material
In a recent interview with QMI Agency, legendary drummer Neil Peart of Rush confirmed that the band has begun work on their next studio album. An excerpt from the interview reads as follows:
QMI Agency: What’s happening with Rush? I read on your blog that you were going to meet in November to discuss your future. What happened?
Peart: "Well, in fact, we’ve just started working on new material. So we plan to get some writing and recording done. And we’re considering doing everything this year - maybe even a bit of touring. We are in action. And we feel a bit liberated by the state of the music business. Even since 2006, when we started Snakes & Arrows, the album has become less significant in these times of iTunes and shuffle settings and whatnot. But perhaps we can take advantage of that and work in a whole different way. So we decided, when we did meet, that we’re not constrained by the patterns of the past, where you spend a year writing and recording, and the next year touring. Anything’s possible now; we can record a couple of songs and put them out and then go on tour if we want. So at this point, we’re just embarking on writing, but keeping ourselves open to all those other possibilities. One of our early titles for this year was Research and Development. That’s where we’re at."
