Snakes & Arrows world premier radio special

Thu, Mar 29, 2007@10:05AM | comments

In the week prior to the release of Snakes & Arrows, FMQB Productions will be releasing a one-hour radio special featuring an interview with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson titled Inside Rush: Snakes & Arrows. The show will air on select stations between April 27th and May 1st. Here are the details from the site:

"It's big, it's bold, and I think it's some of the best work we've done in years. I'm really pleased with the quality of the songs, and there's lots of playing on it," Geddy Lee recently told Revolver magazine. Of course, he was speaking of Rush's 18th studio album, Snakes & Arrows, due out on May 1.

In anticipation of the first new Rush music since 2002's Vapour Trails, FMQB Productions and Atlantic Records present Inside Rush: Snakes & Arrows. In this one-hour world premiere radio special, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson sit down with host Lou Brutus to discuss working with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, Shadows Fall), as the band spent five weeks recording in a remote woodland studio on a mountaintop in upstate New York. Inside Rush: Snakes & Arrows will take your listeners behind the scenes of those sessions, give insight to the bandís new release and possibly offer up some details of what fans can expect on the upcoming world tour.

With over 40 million records sold, Rush boasts 23 gold, 14 platinum and 3 multi-platinum records, making them one of the best-selling rock bands in history. Only The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, KISS and Aerosmith have more consecutive gold and platinum albums by a rock band.

I'm sure there will be several band interviews prior to the release, but this is the first one to be confirmed. They are also rumored to be in talks for an appearance on RockLine the week of the release (see this post).
