Yeah they apparantly completed the song writing about a month ago, and there's supposed to be 12 at this stage, whether they add any or remove any remains to be seen. Alex has stated that throughout the pre-production stage he wrote exclusively on acoustic guitar, here's an interview extract...


Asked how the new songs are developing and Lifeson enthuses, "It's awesome, but I say that about all our records at this point. With every new record, it's the most exciting thing you've ever done.

"But there's a quality about this record that's very expansive and musically lyrical. It's very melodic. I've written almost exclusively on acoustic guitar. When Geddy and I write, I'm playing acoustic and he's playing bass, so there's a different character to the way the writing is developing.

"To me, it seems so apparent immediately whether a piece of music works or not when it's written on acoustic. You're not fooled by some distorted sound or some effect you put on guitar or something like that. This is pure in its essence and you know right away whether this chorus works or whether this verse works.

"So I'm really excited about the way this is going to develop once we start recording it."

I would venture to say they will. When I saw them on the 30th anniversary tour they were incredible! Definitely have a lot of gas left in the tank.

I heard a rumor (and I'm sure it's only just that) that Rush and Dream Theater could tour together next summer, since DT's new studio album is set to be done at that time.
