Vapor Trails Remix, Coming October 1st - Preorder Now
UPDATE: Vapor Trails Remixed is now available for preorder for just $10.78, to be released October 1st. Preorder here!

The Newly Remixed Version Of Vapor Trails And 7-Disc Boxed Set Of Atlantic Studio Albums. Both Are Available On October 1 from Atlantic/Rhino (September 30 internationally)

In 2009, two tracks from VAPOR TRAILS (“One Little Victory” and “Earthshine”) were remixed for the Retrospective III collection, setting you all into a frenzy in anticipation of a possible remixed version of the entire album being released one day. That time has come.

The Vapor Trails Remixed album will be available on CD, Double LP, and digital download on October 1 from Atlantic/Rhino.

“Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances – sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again – and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill’s remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work,” says Geddy Lee.

“Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of ‘One Little Victory,’ ‘Secret Touch,’ and ‘Ceiling Unlimited’ to the melodic musicality of ‘Sweet Miracle’ and ‘How It Is’… these songs have been redeemed. Thank you David!”

The remixed version of VAPOR TRAILS will also be included in the new 7-disc boxed set RUSH: THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1989-2007, which features every studio album Rush recorded for Atlantic Records. The collection includes the Gold & Platinum albums Presto (1989), Roll The Bones (1991), Counterparts (1993), and Test For Echo (1996), as well as their covers EP Feedback (2004) and the Billboard Top 5 album Snakes & Arrows (2007). THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1989-2007 features each album presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork (except for VAPOR TRAILS, which features a reinterpreted version of the original cover) and is also available on October 1 from Atlantic/Rhino. - Rush.com, August 1, 2013

On July 29th, in his latest News Weather & Sports report, Neil Peart announced:

"The band had recently been overseeing a remixed version of our Vapor Trails album, from 2002, as we had never been happy with how it turned out."

This was obviously good news for Rush fans that have been yearning for a remix since the original release in 2002. It has now been confirmed that Vapor Trails has been remixed by David Botrill and mastered by Andy VanDette. In a Facebook post made July 9th, Grammy award winning Canadian record producer David Bottrill announced:

"So...It's late in Los Angeles and I'm just listening to the 1st mastering job by Andy VanDette at Masterdisk of Vapor Trails, a great underrated record by Rush that I finished re-mixing a few weeks ago. This record was written and recorded just after, and about a time of great tragedy, and there were times, I'm sure, where it was uncertain whether the band would ever record together again. I just have to say how proud and grateful I am to have had the opportunity again to work with such creative giants. Please...if you are a fan, or even if you are not, give this new version a chance as I think you will appreciate it for its raw emotion, clarity of purpose, and cathartic appeal. For those who don't know the story, just check out 'Ghost Rider: Travels On The Healing Road' by Neil Peart."
8) enjoy!

I loved the original one, but One Little Victory, and Earthshine got me thinking how the rest of the album would sound.

I've adored VT since it came out but I will buy VTRemixed just 'cause. I AM curious to hear how different it might sound. Songs like "Earthshine," "Freeze," and "Nocturne" might be even gnarlier. :)

The remix is GREAT. Only complaint is that the guitars are kinda drown out on a couple of songs. Other than that, it sounds spectacular.

The guitars are downmixed on some songs but Geddy's bass is warmer and more audible and that makes this remix a WIN for me.
