  RUSH TO RELEASE DELUXE EDITIONS OF LANDMARK ALBUM '2112'
16th November 2012



rush 2112



"Every album is a point in Rush's history, and if it's not getting better, something's wrong. Every album has to be the perfect Rush album." Geddy Lee, 1978

"The first record, where we sounded like Rush." Alex Lifeson

In time for 21/12, Rush are set to release the Deluxe Editions of their 1976 platinum-selling, landmark album, '2112', in three different configurations: The deluxe editions contain a CD/DVD or CD/Blu-Ray material including the remastered 2112 CD with three live bonus tracks and a DVD or Blu-ray™ disc with a 5.1 surround sound audio mix and an interactive digital comic book, a new album cover by original album designer Hugh Syme, liner notes and unpublished photos.

The super deluxe contains the CD/ Blu-ray™ and is meticulously assembled in a hardbound bookcase packed with a 40-page comic book representing every song on '2112'.

Originally released in 1976, Rush's epic, landmark release 2112 was their creative and commercial breakthrough, as well as one of the band's most highly regarded releases among both fans and critics alike. With lyrics written by Neil Peart, and influenced by author Ayn Rand, side one of '2112' kicks off with the ambitious seven-suite title track, set in a futuristic world run by the 'Priests of the Temples of Syrinx' who regulate 'every single facet of every life', which includes books, music, work and play. '2112' conveys the story of humanity's instinctual, inner need for one's free will.

After the mythological journey through 2112, side two brings you back to the present and continues with five stand-alone tracks. From hard-rocking tracks such as 'A Passage To Bangkok', 'Lessons', and a trip to into the fourth dimension with 'The Twilight Zone', to the album's soaring conclusion, 'Something For Nothing', '2112' is the album that ushered in the next stage in Rush's continuing evolution as artists and remains one of the most influential and loved of all rock records...

Universal Music will release '2112' on the 17th December 2012.

Available in three formats: Deluxe Edition CD/DVD, Deluxe Edition CD/Blu-Ray, Super Deluxe Edition CD/Blu-Ray/Hardbound book case.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
