Alex Lifeson made an appearance at Sweetwater's 20th annual Gearfest yesterday, closing out the 2-day virtual event with a 20-minute interview where he discusses his new signature guitar, his new musical projects and more. Sweetwater has made the entire interview available for viewing online, and you can watch it below or at this location (thanks RushFanForever). Lifeson has been very busy in recent weeks. Back on June 15th he surprised fans by releasing two NEW instrumental tracks via his newly-minted official website at, coinciding with the release of his new signature Epiphone Les Paul Standard Axcess guitar. The 2 new tracks are titled Kabul Blues and Spy House, and both are available for listening online via his website here. Andy Curran plays bass guitar on both tracks and David Quinton Steinberg was recruited for the drums on Spy House, but otherwise it's all Lerxst. Curran later revealed in an Ultimate Classic Rock interview last week that the these 2 tracks are the first glimpses of a new Alex Lifeson side project collaboration with Curran, guitarist Alfio Annibalini and vocalist Maiah Wynne called Envy of None. The project has recorded a total of 10 songs and are hoping to release an album by late summer or early fall.
