Rush are previewing audio of “Roll The Bones” from their forthcoming concert film, “R40 Live.”
Mixed by David Botrill (Tool, Muse), the title track to the band’s 1991 album was recorded during two shows in the band’s hometown of Toronto in June.
The concerts at the Air Canada Centre marked the first time the band have filmed in their hometown in almost 20 years, dating back to a 1997 recording at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on the Test For Echo tour.
Prior to that, the group filmed a concert video and later released an accompanying album for the Grace Under Pressure tour in 1984 at Maple Leaf Gardens.
The "R40 Live" version of “Roll The Bones” features a variety of special guests in the rap part of the song, including Jay Baruchel (She’s Out Of My League), Les Claypool (Primus), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), The Trailer Park Boys, and Jason Segel & Paul Rudd (I Love You, Man).
The "R40 Live" concert film will be released on November 20 with more details to be announced soon.
Named after the band’s 40th anniversary box set, “R40”, the tour may the last one of its size for Rush.
