ush guitarist and co-founder, Alex Lifeson is working on a new album with former Coney Hatch bassist, Andy Curran, and vocalist Maiah Wayne.

They’re recording under the name, Envy Of None.

In an interview with Guitar World, Lifeson explained how the idea came about: He said, “Andy approached me about four years ago, shortly after the last Rush tour, about adding some guitar on some of the things he was doing. I did that. A few months later, he sent another one, and did that.”

Afterwards they started getting more serious and decided they needed a great singer and found Maiah Wynne.

As to when it will be released, Lifeson says it’s a challenge because, “The industry is so, so very different than it was certainly 10 years ago. Never mind last year.”

He’s hoping for a late summer, early fall release.

Lifeson described the music like this: “It’s like, if you can picture maybe Massive Attack with a little bit of some electronic stuff with Nine Inch Nails influences… with this beautiful voice and some very, very dark, heavy sounds. That’s kind of what this project sounds like.”

The band has finished recording everything and is currently mixing the album.
