VIDEO: Rush preview 2112 hologram vinyl reissue

Rush are sharing a preview of the special vinyl Hologram Edition reissue of the band's 1976 classic, “2112”, due March 17.

Pressed on high fidelity 200gram vinyl, the unique Hologram Edition showcases a custom, hand- of the "Red Star of the Federation" in the album's dead wax runout of side two.

To reveal the spinning hologram, fans can use any focused source of light, such as the LED flashlight on a smartphone, directly above the turntable while playing.

The “2112” special edition will also come with a free download card for the high resolution Digital Audio version.

“The first record where we sounded like Rush,” says guitarist Alex Lifeson.

“2112” has been newly-remastered on 200-gram, heavyweight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process, all from original analogue masters.

The package is one of 14 Rush albums being re-released with upgraded high-definition audio in 2015.

The band are re-releasing materal from their years with Mercury Records in chronological order each month throughout 2015, starting in January with 1975’s “Fly By Night” and wrapping up in December with 1989’s “A Show Of Hands.”

Rush have just announced North American dates for the R40 40th anniversary tour.

The band will hit 34 cities across the continent this summer, with shows beginning May 8 in Tulsa, OK.

The tour is named after their recently-released 40th anniversary box set, “R40.”
