Rush’s “CLOCKWORK ANGELS” wins Album of the Year at 2012 Prog Awards

 

The first ever Prog Magazine Awards were held in London, UK on Friday September 7, 2012.  Some of the biggest names in rock were at the event held in Kew Gardens, marking the first time progressive rock has been celebrated with a dedicated award ceremony. The big winner was Rush who won Album Of The Year for Clockwork Angels. From Rush.com here is what was said…

Clockwork Angels picked up “Album of the Year” at last night’s Prog Awards.  Here’s BBC’s wrap up of the event.

“Canadian rock band Rush’s latest concept album, Clockwork Angels, was named Album Of The Year. With its dystopian steampunk theme, the three-piece’s 19th studio album has earned rapturous reviews, even in the mainstream press.

Describing it as Rush’s “most solid and compelling set of songs in years”, The Guardian went on to say: “Those who worship at the temple of Rush will be in raptures; for those who remain agnostic, there may well be enough here to justify a leap of faith.”

The Clockwork Angels North American Tour kicks off tonight in Manchester, NH.
