Nick Raskulinecz to produce new Rush album

UPDATE - 9/8@11:46AM In a recent Neil Peart interview, Neil said that the band will gather for pre-production on the new album the week of September 18 and head into the studio with Nick in November.

UPDATE - 8/31@12:48PM Power Windows's contact at Anthem has also confirmed the producer but said "hopefully early spring" on the album release. They also said that an "official" announcement will be coming soon.

UPDATE - 8/30@2:10PM I located this EQ Magazine interview with Nick Raskulinecz from this past June. He discusses producing Fireball Ministry's Their Rock Is Not Our Rock and when asked about artists he'd like a shot at producing he says, Rush. That would be my dream album to make. Nobody plays like those guys anymore. Looks like his dream has come true. :)

Here is some breaking news regarding the new album. According to drew777 at Counterparts the producer for the upcoming Rush studio album will be Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, Velvet Revolver) and the engineer will by Rick Chycki (album credits), who worked with Rush on R30. The album is also expected to be out before year's end. The poster claims that this information has been verified by Anthem but I haven't been able to independently verify it myself yet. At the risk of sounding like Matt Drudge, ... developing. :)
