RUSH: “Vapor Trails” Remixed


After several years speculation in interviews, prog legends Rush have finally got round to remixing their 2002 album Vapor Trails!

Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances – sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again – and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill’s remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work,” says Geddy Lee.

“Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of One Little VictorySecret Touch and Ceiling Unlimited to the melodic musicality of Sweet Miracle and How It Is… these songs have been redeemed. Thank you David!”

The remixed version of Vapor Trails is available on Atlantic from September 30 as a CD, double vinyl and also digital download. It will also be included in the new 7-disc boxed set THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1989-2007, which features every studio album Rush recorded for Atlantic Records. The collection includes the Gold & Platinum albums Presto (1989), Roll The Bones (1991), Counterparts (1993), and Test For Echo(1996), as well as their covers EP Feedback (2004) and the Billboard Top 5 album Snakes & Arrows(2007). THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1989-2007 features each album presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork (except for VAPOR TRAILS, which features a reinterpreted version of the original cover) and is available on September 30 from Atlantic/Rhino.

Rush are currently wrapping up the final shows of their triumphant Clockwork Angels 2013 tour with a finale on August 4 in Kansas City, Missouri. For more information and other Rush-related news, please visit the band’s official website,
