New Geddy Lee interview with Brazil's TV UOL

UPDATE - 10/8@3:09PM: Here's another Geddy interview from Brasil's TV Cultura and you can check it out here (thanks RushFanForever).

Rush kicks off the South American leg of the Time Machine Tour tonight at the Estadio do Morumbi in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Brazil's TV UOL recently conducted an interview with Geddy Lee where he expounds a bit on his comments from an earlier interview with Chilean newspaper El Mercurio regarding a possible tour DVD:

We record every night. We don't film every night but we have a lot of cameras around. So invariably by the time this show [Geddy may have meant to say this tour] is finished we'll put together some sort of live representation of it. What form that will take I'm not sure yet.

He also had this to say regarding their upcoming Clockwork Angels album:

The new album is still in production. We've recorded 2 songs so far. One of them called Caravan and the other one called Brought up to Believe [BU2B]. That's the beginning 2 songs of a whole kind of a concept album called Clockwork Angels. We have four other songs - five songs written but not recorded yet. And we still have a couple more songs that we want to write and then put the whole thing together. So I don't think the album will be ready for about a year.

That would push the album's release date more towards the end of 2011 rather than the Spring of next year as first anticipated. If that's the case then they likely won't tour in support of the album until the 2012 time frame. I've heard rumors of another mini-tour next summer though - perhaps an extension of the Time Machine Tour? We shall see. Geddy also talks about the Moving Pictures album, the Rush documentary, the future of the band, and a range of other subjects. You can watch the entire interview below or at this link:

Thanks to Psico for the heads up.
