RUSH: Peart's Stepping Out

6/22/2012

Rush drummer Neil Peart has stepped out from behind the kit to voice Clockwork Angels, the novel based on the new Rush album of the same name. It was written by Peart's friend, science fiction author Kevin J. Anderson. Anderson says, "For more than 20 years, Neil and I have wanted to collaborate on something major, a way we could tie together our imaginations, and at last that's happening. We worked together to flesh out the epic story told over the course of the music... In a young man's quest to follow his dreams, he is caught between the grandiose forces of order and chaos. He travels across a lavish and colorful world of steam punk and alchemy, with lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life..." The chapters will have some of the lyrics incorporated into the narrative. It is scheduled to be published on September 1st.
