Ed from RushIsABand just let me know that he was fed what appears to be legitimate artwork for Rush's upcoming Clockwork Angels album and tour. The artwork came from a very reliable source, though it has yet to be confirmed publicly by the band or Anthem Entertainment.
The album cover depicts a clock of runes in the familiar Clockwork Angels style, and has an imposing, swirling red vortex in the background.
The possible tourbook cover is very reminiscent of some of the artwork that appeared in the Snakes & Arrows album booklet. What's more interesting about the tour book cover is the fact that a dalmation and a fire hydrant are depicted as well. Unquestionably, this is somehow tied to the Signals album which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year.
Could this indicate that, similar to the Time Machine Tour of 2010-11, Rush are planning on performing Signals in its entirety during the tour? Time will tell.
Hopefully Rush will confirm the album artwork soon. We'll let you known when they do.
Thanks again to Ed for passing along the news.
