Rush Atlantic Years vinyl reissues!

Pressed on luxurious 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Presings!

Limited time album download included for 320kbps vinyl-ripped MP4s

Rush's 2015 year of reissues has gotten busier. The band throughout much of 2015 has been bringing its classic early albums to vinyl and hi-def digital audio via a yearlong reissue campaign that encompasses the LPs they recorded for Mercury between the self-titled 1974 debut and 1989′s A Show of Hands.

Those releases, scheduled to conclude in December, will now be joined by a separate slew of reissues that focus on the group's Atlantic recordings.

Six of those albums — Presto (1989), Roll the Bones (1991), Counterparts (1993), Test for Echo (1996), Feedback (2004) and Snakes & Arrows (2007) — are set to be pressed on audiophile-quality, 200-gram vinyl by Quality Record Pressings, each sold with a code to access a high-definition digital download. Three of the releases (Counterparts, Test for Echo and Snakes & Arrows) are being released as two-LP sets; according to a press release, the Counterparts and Test for Echo vinyl editions also "feature etched designs on side D of the album which are available for the first time on these pressings."

The set of reissues, called the Atlantic Years on Vinyl, will arrive in chronological installments — with Presto and Roll the Bones arriving Oct. 23. Counterparts and Test for Echo follow Nov. 6, with Feedback and Snakes & Arrows rounding out the series on Jan. 15, 2016.

"From a lyrical perspective, 1991's Roll the Bones is quite possibly Rush's darkest album (most of the songs deal with death in no uncertain terms), but from a musical point of view, the record treads territory (highbrow melodic hard rock) similar to its recent predecessors, with only a few surprises thrown in for good measure. These include an amusing rap section in the middle of the title track, a welcome return to instrumentals with 'Where's my Thing?,' and one of the band's finest songs of the '90s in the gutsy 'Dreamline.'" — AllMusic
