Geddy Lee tells Rolling Stone - that the new Rush album will be out in Spring 2012!

“We’re almost finished writing. We wound the machine back up about three weeks ago. After a sluggish start, we’ve had a very fruitful couple of weeks in terms of writing,” he said. “I’m very pleased with the direction that the material has taken. And I think we have one or two more songs that we’d like to write, and then we'll start recording in earnest."
“Hopefully we’ll have all of the recording done before Christmas. Then we’ll mix it sometime in the next year, and then get it out.”
