NEW RUSH ALBUM HEADED FOR TOP OF CHART?

Rush's new studio album, Clockwork Angels, is expected to sell between 85,000 and 95,000 copies in its first week of release since arriving in stores last Tuesday (June 12th). Those sales estimates are based on one-day tracking reports compiled by industry website Hits Daily Double. Those sales could be good enough to put the album in the Top Three or even possibly earn the group its first-ever Number One on this week's Billboard album chart, which comes out on Wednesday (June 20th).
The new disc is Rush's 20th studio effort and the trio's first explicit concept album since 1978's Hemispheres, with drummer and lyricist Neil Peart coming up with the plot and characters. We asked guitarist Alex Lifeson about getting back into storytelling mode.
