Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were recently interviewed for Music & Musicians magazine where they talk about the Clockwork Angels album and upcoming tour:

LIFESON: It seems that with every tour we feel like we're playing better and better. The show is getting tighter, and we sense greater confidence in our playing abilities. And in a production sense, the show has also developed with every new album and every new tour. So there are always ways to move forward. We've always set a high standard for ourselves in terms of our playing, and the fact that we're getting a lot of younger people in the audience indicates that they're looking for players. The show is over three hours, and there are not too many bands that do that these days.

LEE: We're going to be rehearsing for at least seven or eight weeks this summer to make sure that we can play these songs. Putting the tour together is a big job, and obviously we want our fans to love what we're putting together. So it's hard to see past that, to be honest. We'll figure it out.

According to Alex Lifeson's recent Humble & Fred radio interview, the band kicked off full rehearsals this week. You can read the entire interview at this link (thanks Eric at Power Windows).
