Rush fans who have waited five years for new pearls of wisdom from their favorite band will soon be satisfied. According to reports that have not been confirmed by their label, their new album, ‘Clockwork Angels,’ will be released on May 29 in the United States, Japan and their native Canada.

The news comes courtesy of the Examiner, who saw pre-order listings for ‘Clockwork Angels’ on Amazon.com and their international sites. However, Ultimate Classic Rock wrote to their label, who would not confirm a release date.

‘Clockwork Angels’ will be Rush’s 19th studio album and first since 2007′s ‘Snakes and Arrows.’ Two songs from the new record, ‘Caravan’ and ‘BU2B,’ were released to radio and digitally in June 2010, and as a 7″ single for Record Store Day 2011. The two-year delay between the release of the single and the album is due to the extension of the ‘Time Machine’ tour.

As with ‘Snakes and Arrows,’ the band hired Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with Velvet Revolver, Foo Fighters and Weezer, to produce. Last month, we reported that lyrical themes throughout ‘Clockwork Angels’ dealt with, as bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee put it, “a different kind of future and the whole aesthetic of steampunk, which is so cool.”
