The Rush camp is celebrating 40 years of their album “Signals” with a super deluxe version featuring a new cover by Hugh Syme and the 2015 remastered audio on vinyl for the first time ever. The album vinyl was cut for the first time at half-speed via DMM & pressed on 180g black vinyl for optimal vinyl quality with new Hugh Syme art in a premium tip-on jacket.
The band has been releasing visualizer videos from the box set over the past few weeks in the lead up to its release, the latest of which is a visualizer for ‘The Weapon’ which you can watch below. There are also visualizers for “Digital Man”, “The Analog Kid“, and “Chemistry” along with an unboxing video.
The deluxe version of “Signals” also features:
- A Blu-ray Audio disc with brand-new Dolby Atmos & 5.1 surround mixes by Richard Chycki, the 2015 48kHz 24-bit stereo remaster, animated visualizers, and bonus music videos for “Subdivisions” and “Countdown.”
- A 40-page hardcover book with new song illustrations and unreleased photos from the “Signals” tour
- Four 7-inches with new art
- Three lenticular pieces of art
- Four Signals tour band lithos
- Syme‘s original album cover sketch litho
- A double-sided 24-inch by 24-inch poster featuring Syme‘s new art on one side and an outtake photo from the original album cover shoot on the other side
- Eight printed lyric sheets originally hand-drawn by Neil Peart
