09/12/06 - RUSH Working on a New Record
According to Jonathan Cohen of Billboard.com RUSH has penned eight songs for its next
studio album, which should be out in early 2007.
Drummer NEIL PEART tells Billboard.com that his lyrics for the set part of the same influence as his new book "Roadshow: Landscape With Drums", which chronicled his motorcycle journeys throughout the United States.
Apparently, Peart was struck by the religious billboards that have sprung up on America's highways. The billboards got him thinking about some weighty topics. "Just seeing the power of evangelical Christianity and contrasting that with the power of fundamentalist religion all over the world in its different forms had a big effect on me," Perth says.
"You try to put your own way of seeing the world into some kind of congruence with other peoples, and that's
difficult for me,". "I mean, I see the world in what I think to be a perfectly obvious and rational way, but
when you go out into it and see the way other people think and behave, and express themselves on church signs, you
realize, 'Well, I'm not really part of this club.'"
"I looked for the good side of faith,". "To me it ought to be your armor, something to protect you and something to console you in dark times. But it's more often being turned into a sword, and that's one big theme I'm messing with."
