I will say this: I don't think it's an April Fools joke. I don't see any reason to post something speculative -- what's the point of April Fool's if you say, "Ha! Got ya!" however many days after April 1. But I know nothing. Collectively, nobody knows anything, as we float on this space rock in the middle of a meaningless universe.

Theories:

1. This is a very cruel april fools joke, which seems very out of character for Rush

2. this is the Hemisphere's 40th remaster announcement, with blue vinyl...but they've been saving these remasters for November over the past two years...

3. And I really am not sure I even want to let myself hope for this... but there is a slim chance this is a new album announcement... very slim... why would they be so secretive about it though... and act like in recent interviews that there are no future plans...?

4. No it's not a tour announcement. I refuse to believe that. Case closed.


I have no idea, and I'm very concerned.

Record Store Day is on the 21st. Judging on the image, it's obviously a vinyl LP. Probably just a reissue. Hemispheres 40th is this year, so it makes sense.

Why are you "very concerned"? If a parent was gravely ill, I'd get that but this is a band who doesn't know you from Adam (or Steve). I think this is a great place for Occam's Razor and figure it's probably got something to do with Hemispheres.

Well, that's a bit of overdramatisation on my part. I just really don't want to get my hopes up here for something it might not be.

Understood. I'd say then, just figure it's a nothing burger and when it turns out to be a new album with 50 city tour of the world, you'll be pleasantly surprised. :D

Every March 31, I remind myself to put no stock in anything that appears online on April 1..especially if it would otherwise raise an eyebrow. So for now, I'll assume it's an Aoril 1 joke.

Peart 's publishers are finally releasing that thousand page book he wrote about the flora and fauna he saw while biking from Orem to St George Utah with random shots at the Mormon church interspersed throughout.

The OP and I got very different ideas of what 'very cryptic' means. It's a teaser for a blue vinyl from the look of the picture. I don't think it's foreshadowing anything huge.

1000 pages on sagebrush and scrub oak. And all Mormon churches pretty much look the same. By design.

I know this isn't a church, but any idea why they put pentagrams for windows and in between the windows on this temple in Nauvoo, IL?

If there is a 40th anniversary release of Hemispheres,please no crap cover versions. Instead give us a decent live version of Cygnus X1 - Book 2, there are a few around.

I'd put serious money on a vinyl release, and am guessing it will be a 40th Hemispheres.

No way it's a tour... Neil's tech is on tour with Steely Dan later this year. Among 100 other reasons.
