Gibson Guitars has published another interview with Alex Lifeson where the discussions centered around The Time Machine Tour, progress on Clockwork Angels, the re-mixing of Vapor Trails and more. In the interview, Alex indicates that Clockwork Angels is progressing along nicely and that the album will likely contain eight or nine songs:Well, you know, we had six songs written. Those two were the two we decided to record just prior to the tour start, around this time last year. Since then, Geddy and I have been writing. We've been writing for the last couple of weeks and I think we've got the makings of another song. Pretty close. Some other snippets of ideas. Once we get back into the writing full-steam in the next week or so, with all those bits and pieces, I'm sure we'll be able to get at least another song or maybe two. In which case, I think we're looking at eight or nine songs as the magic number.Alex then reveals that the band is looking at a potential Spring 2012 tour to support Clockwork Angels:You know, our intention was to get into the studio and record as soon as that brief tour ended, but that didn't quite happen. So we're back from this tour in July. We'll take a short break in the summer, start recording in September and hopefully have the new album out for the start of the next tour, which would be in the spring of 2012.Click HERE to read the entire article, which has some interesting insight into the thought-process behind the remixing Vapor Trails.
