Canadian prog-rockers Rush have announced a record deal with acclaimed record label, Roadrunner Records, and plans for a live album.
“We have tremendous respect for Roadrunner Records and what Cees Wessels and Jonas Nachsin have built on a worldwide level,” said Rush manager Ray Danniels. “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.”
Lipsky, president of Lipsky Music, LLC., and the person who brokered the Roadrunner deal, had his share of thoughts on signing the band.
“Rush has a tradition of excellence and independence,” said Lipsky. “Both in the studio and on the live stage, and they remain as prolific today as at any point in their career. We are excited to be their label partners.”
The band’s first release through Roadrunner Records will be a live record taken from their Time Machine tour.
