There is no prog grass growing under Rush's feet. The band will spend the frozen months of January and February writing new material. Guitarist Alex Lifeson told Canada's Guitarist magazine that the band is armed with a plethora of songs, but that the album is still incomplete.

They'll need to pen two or three more in order to finish the record. Rush will then rework their songs and then hit the road in on the 'Time Machine' tour through July.

The summer will be vacation time for the band, and then they'll resume work on the album in September. It'll be back to school for the kids and back to work for Rush.
