Rush have released an official theatre trailer for upcoming concert movie Time Stand Still.

Described as a document of their “final touring chapter,” it’s to be screened in North America on November 3, with a DVD release to follow on November 18.

Producers say: “Featuring interviews with the band throughout their sold-out 2015 40th Anniversary tour, the film also shows rarely seen backstage footage capturing the final moments of life on the road.

“This is the final touring chapter of a band that has meant so much to so many fans around the world. It’s an intimate view ‘under the hood’ of a historic moment from the perspective of the band, their fans, crew, and management.”

The R40 tour is thought to have been their final road trip as a result of drummer Neil Peart’s decision to retire, although it’s never been definitely announced. Guitarist Alex Lifeson said last month that he the band “couldn’t just stop.”

In the trailer, Lifeson reflects: “It wasn’t until we had the conversations that we had that I started thinking of the end, and wringing the towel dry.”

The cinema version includes A Salute To Kings, an in-depth discussion about the band’s impact, featuring musicians Gene Simmons, Chad Smith, Taylor Hawkins, Ann and Nancy Wilson, Scott Gorham and producer Nick Raskulinecz.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
