Roadrunner Records signs RUSH

ROADRUNNER RECORDS is pleased to announce a new worldwide partnership with Anthem Records and rock trio RUSH. The band will remain on Anthem/Universal Music in Canada only.

“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 genre – and that’s Roadrunner,” said Ray Danniels, manager of Rush.

“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,” said Cees Wessels, Roadrunner Records Chairman.

“Rush has a tradition of excellence and independence, both in the studio and on the live stage, and they remain as prolific today as at any point in their career. We are excited to be their label partners,” said Tom Lipsky, President of Lipsky Music, LLC, who brokered the significant deal for Roadrunner.

The first release from RUSH through this deal will be various live configurations, recorded during their highly successful Time Machine tour that wrapped earlier this summer. Details of the release will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Didn't see that coming, at all. But cool, I guess. It's not like they can try to tell Rush what to do.

Roadrunner is a good label but I don't think this is really gonna do much for Rush at this point in their career.

So?

This is strange and unexpected because Roadrunner is known for newer, heavier bands i.e. Nickleback, but it's really not significant. We're getting a new Rush album and that's all that matters.

Is Opeth on Roadrunner?
In fact I just started wondering when the hell the new album is coming out, there was a barrage of news on Blabbermouth about it a few weeks back and now it seems like it's died down. Sept 16th on Roadrunner, yes please.

Everyone still thinks that, but I don't really see why they do. Rush signing with them isn't even remotely surprising. I mean, these are all on Roadrunner:

Megadeth
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Rob Zombie
KISS
Porcupine Tree
Slash
Heaven & Hell
Ratt
Dream Theater
Opeth
Sammy Hagar
Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Meat Loaf
Lenny Kravitz
Queensryche
Steve Miller Band
