We’ve played hundreds of American towns supporting whoever we could. We figured Canada would come naturally. It’s all starting to come together this year. 2112 was given good promotion by Mercury, and the USA tour was timed perfectly. All our past records are still selling. We don’t seem to be a singles band. Mercury first signed us, thinking we’d have a string of hits like Bachman-Turner Overdrive. We had to fight for the thematic idea of 2112. But since 2112 was released, Mercury’s given us a great deal of support.
Realizing the exhausting nature of albums that included so many long songs, the band summarily had decided that Hemispheres would mark the end of an era. Recording at Morin Heights was an inspiring experience, the band spurred on by the lake locale, the view of the Laurentian Mountains, and the nighttime volleyball games. The result was a buoyant album that eschewed the darkness of Hemispheres. Permanent Waves (working title, Waveforms) was released January 1, 1980. ” Four additional tracks rounded out a record that was in total under 36 minutes long, with each of those containing a plethora of parts.
After all, the album marked the first of the band’s two drastic detours away from the side-long, multi-suite statements of the sort that partially defined their creative and commercial arc leading up to its 1979 recording sessions. Sides A and B end with the relative brevity of “Jacob’s Ladder” and “Natural Science,” respectively, with both songs clocking under the ten-minute mark. And while 1977’s “Closer to the Heart” may have officially charted higher (No. 33 on the Billboard pop charts), the two singles from Permanent Waves that received repeated airplay would combine to solidify Rush as a hard-rock radio staple and provide crucial groundwork for the mega breakthrough of 1981’s Moving Pictures.
