Back in February we learned that Sexy Intellectual Studios - who is known for making unofficial music documentaries - would be releasing a new Rush documentary titled Rush: The Rise Of Kings (1968-1981). The documentary has a running time of just over 2 hours and will be released on May 6th in North America; it is already available for purchase in the UK at this link. A 3-minute video preview was released last month and can be seen below or at this location (thanks John at Cygnus-X1.net). Here's a short description of the film from the Amazon editorial review:
...This film traces the history of Rush from the bar rooms of Toronto in the late 1960s to the world's largest arenas in the late 70s and early 1980s, by which time they were amongst the biggest bands on the planet. Through a stunning combination of rare and classic footage, the testimony of friends, colleagues and those who worked with the group across the years, plus exclusive and archive interviews and a host of other features, this programme makes the very unique history of Rush come alive in a manner previously undocumented.
You can pre-order you copy of the documentary at this location.
