Rush Sign With Roadrunner Records, Plan Live Album

Legendary Canadian rockers Rush have inked a worldwide record deal (excluding Canada) with Roadrunner Records. Ray Danniels, the manager of Rush had this to say about the new partnership:

“We have tremendous respect for Roadrunner Records and what Cees Wessels and Jonas Nachsin have built on a worldwide level. After years of Roadrunner pursuing the band, Tom Lipsky presented a deal that worked and the timing was right. We wanted to be at a label focused on the rock genreβ€”and that’s Roadrunner.”

On the Roadrunner side, Chairman Cees Wessels spoke of his delight at having secured the trio:

“In another life I worked with Rush and their great management team more than 30 years ago and to have Rush finally on the Roadrunner label is a dream come true. I am grateful for Ray Danniels’ confidence in this new partnership.”

Rush’s first release for Roadrunner will be a live album taken from the band’s recent Time Machine tour.
