Rush Release Lyric Video For “Headlong Flight,” Announce North American Tour Dates

Posted by on April 19, 2012


Yesterday, Rush premiered a new song called “Headlong Flight” via Rolling Stone’s website. It didn’t take the Canadian prog rock trio long, though, to release a lyric video for the first single off of their new album Clockwork Angels. We previously heard a snippet of “Headlong Flight.” And while we were impressed by the thirty seconds we heard, the full song is even better. Seriously, Geddy Lee’s bass lines are sick, while Alex Lifeson’s guitar riffs are equally killer. Plus, while Rolling Stone streamed the radio version, the lyric video above includes the full seven minute plus version of “Headlong Flight.”

As if that wasn’t enough for Rush fans, the band has also announced dates for a North American Fall/Winter tour. Tickets for most of the shows go on sale this weekend. You can check out a rundown of dates confirmed so far after the jump. Rush will release their long awaited new album Clockwork Angels on June 12 via Roadrunner Records.
