Rush’s seventh studio album, Permanent Waves, was released on New Years Day 1980, and recorded at Le Studio in Quebec, becoming the first U.S. album to go Top Five, peaking at #4 on the Billboard charts. The platinum certified effort marked a transition from the band’s long, conceptual pieces into a more accessible, radio-friendly style as heard on such heavily played hits as “The Spirit of Radio” and “Freewill.”
“This era seems to be pushing New Wave, and this Wave, and that Wave. The material we’re doing is just Permanent Wave-it’s just music. It’s the love of music and how, with everything new, it’s just a continuation, like a wave coming back in from the ocean.” – Alex Lifesson, Guitar Player (June 1980)
