Rush 2112: Super Deluxe Edition on Limited Edition CD + Blu-Ray + Comic Book

Featuring 5.1 Surround Sound Mixes, Unreleased Live Tracks and the First Ever Rush Comic Book!

Originally issued in 1976, Rush's epic, landmark release 2112 was their collective 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, opening title track "2112" kicks off with the ambitious seven-suite title track (side one), 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-along 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.

In time for 21/12 celebrations, Universal Music Enterprises will release deluxe editions of Rush's landmark album 2112 that will feature 5.1 surround sound mixes, unreleased live tracks and the first ever Rush comic book. The super deluxe edition contains the CD/Blu-Ray and is meticulously assembled in a hardbound bookcase packed with a 40-page comic book by story artist Tom Hodges (Star Wars "The Clone Wars," The Simpson's "Treehouse of Horrors #17) representing every song on 2112; a 24 page book with expanded artwork, liner notes, lyrics and unreleased photos; and new liner notes written by David Fricke of Rolling Stone.

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

"The first record," Alex Lifeson says about 2112, "where we sounded like Rush." 

"2112 is, more than anything, a record about being Rush: loving music, moving it forward and taking it to the world, whatever the price. And it is perfect." - David Fricke
