Tue, Sep 22, 2009@9:17AM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 9/22@12:22PM: Reader scott s points out that you can preview full versions of All Is Said And Done and Save Me From Myself along with extended samples (1 to 2 minutes long) of the other 10 songs at the Vertical Horizon website.

The new Vertical Horizon album Burning The Days, which features Neil Peart on 3 songs, releases today. Neil plays drums on the tracks Save Me From Myself, Even Now (which he also wrote the lyrics for) and Welcome to the Bottom. You can listen to Save Me From Myself at the band's MySpace page and Amazon has 30-second clips of all the songs available here. You can order your copy at this link.

Neil Peart first informed us about this side project in one of his News updates on his website back in 2006. Neil and Vertical Horizon frontman Matt Scannell had become friends when Neil moved to Los Angeles as Neil describes in his two most recent books Roadshow and Travelling Music. Matt describes Neil's involvement in this interview from back in 2007 and this article details why the album was delayed for such a long time.
