Andy Curran Hints at Future Rush Releases and the Band's Future
On Friday, Canada's FYI Music News published an article featuring the Andy Curran who, as many Rush fans may know, was Anthem Entertainment's former A&R executive. After Anthem was acquired by Canadian-headquartered music rights management firm ole, Curran was named the new Label Services general manager/A&R.
In the article, Curran hints at some upcoming Rush related releases for 2016:"Aside from prepping the 40th anniversary deluxe edition of 2112 and a documentary of Rush’s R40 tour that is looking to be released in 2016’s fourth quarter, Curran is pouring over the catalogue to prep long-unavailable titles for reissue, digitally, on CD and on vinyl."The R40 tour documentary was developed by the band in conjunction with Fadoo Productions. During the R40 tour, Fadoo had documentary crews on hand during most of the shows, as well as at last year's RushCon. The documentary focuses primarily on the fans.
The comment about the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of 2112 is interesting and a little perplexing, given the band has already released a deluxe edition of the album back in 2012. Given this is the 40th Anniversary of the release of Rush's first live album All the World's a Stage, one has to wonder if this album, and not 2112, is getting some type of Deluxe Edition reissue.
Regarding the future of Rush, Curran had this to say:“If I was a gambling man, I would say those guys are going to record some more music,” Curran says. “The live component is certainly a question mark with Neil, but they’re still quite young at heart. I don’t see those guys sitting still for too long and we’ll be working with them in the future.”You can read the entire article via this LINK.
