Clockwork Angels due out in May according to new Prog magazine Rush feature

I had mentioned in my recent Friday Rush updates post that the latest edition of Classic Rock's Prog magazine includes interviews with the hottest acts in prog today including Rush. The piece on Rush is only one page and is just an extension of older interviews with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. They re-use pieces from those interviews but also include some new bits such as these comments from Geddy on the band's new Roadrunner label:

... There was something about the people at Roadrunner, they were so into rock, into what we're all about as opposed to some of the Atlantic guys. ... Frankly, we were very unhappy with the way we were treated at Atlantic UK, I don't think they really got us, so it was good to go somewhere that did. ...

They also mention at the end of the article that Clockwork Angels is out in May via Roadrunner, which is consistent with the late April/early May rumors that I'd been hearing from other sources. Many had speculated that the release might be delayed since Kevin J. Anderson's novelization of the album is not due out until the Fall, but if the Prog article is correct this doesn't seem to be the case. You can read the entire piece by clicking on the thumbnail. The issue also contains the results of their 2011 Readers' Poll. Geddy Lee won for Best Bassist, and Rush's Time Machine video took top honors in the Best DVD category. The cover is a collage of prog-rock artists and includes a small photo of Geddy Lee. Thanks to Tony R for the scan.
