Roadrunner Records is quickly becoming a Haus of Prog! With Opeth and Dream Theater already on the impressive roster, the label has added Rush to its stable of bands! Woo-hoo.
"We have tremendous respect for Roadrunner Records and what Cees Wessels and Jonas Nachsin have built on a worldwide level. After years of Roadrunner pursuing the band, Tom Lipsky presented a deal that worked and the timing was right. We wanted to be at a label focused on the rock genre -- and that's Roadrunner," said Ray Danniels, manager of Rush.
"In another life I worked with Rush and their great management team more than 30 years ago and to have Rush finally on the Roadrunner label is a dream come true. I am grateful for Ray Danniels' confidence in this new partnership," said Cees Wessels, Roadrunner Records Chairman.
The first release from Rush through this deal will be various live configurations recorded during their highly successful "Time Machine" tour that wrapped earlier this summer. Details of the release will be revealed in the coming weeks, so stay tuned, Rush fanatics.
Congrats to all parties involved!
Are you looking forward to live material from Rush?
