Rush ‘The Studio Albums 1989-2007’ Coming In October

August 4, 2013

With a career that spans nearly 40 years, and music that continues to inspire and influence new generations of artists and fans alike, Rush has become one of the most beloved bands of all time. This past April in Los Angeles, the band took its rightful place alongside other music heavyweights when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On October 1st, two major reissues from Rush will be available via Atlantic/Rhino. The first is a seven-disc boxed set, ‘The Studio Albums 1989-2007’, which includes every studio album Rush recorded for Atlantic Records: 1989’s ‘Presto’, 1991’s ‘Roll The Bones’, 1993’s ‘Counterparts’, 1996’s ‘Test For Echo’, 2002’s ‘Vapor Trails’, 2004’s ‘Feedback’ covers EP, and 2007’s ‘Snakes & Arrows’. Each album will be presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork — except for ‘Vapor Trails’, which features a re-interpreted version of the original cover, for reasons that will become clear below.

‘The Studio Albums 1989-2007’ will include a remixed version of ‘Vapor Trails’. In 2009, two tracks from the album — “One Little Victory” and “Earthshine” — were remixed for the ‘Retrospective III’ collection, but now the entire album has been remixed, and will be available separately, as well as in the boxed set. The stand-alone version will be available on CD, double LP, and digital download, and will also be released on October 1st.

“Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances — sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again — and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill’s remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work,” says Rush frontman Geddy Lee.

“Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of ‘One Little Victory,’ ‘Secret Touch,’ and ‘Ceiling Unlimited’ to the melodic musicality of ‘Sweet Miracle’ and ‘How It Is’… these songs have been redeemed. Thank you David!”
