Caravan, Rush's Steampunk Video

Visual mediums applied to music are particular impressive, as seen by the growing number of recording artists incorporating Steampunk imagery into the video accompanying their music.  When I saw the legendary rock group Rush display their work for the single "Caravan", it did raise an eye to see a very well know rock group inject a good bit of Steampunk into their work.  Additionally, this song is projected to be part of their upcoming studio album, titled "Clockwork Angles", which will be released later this year.  Not sure *exactly* how much Steampunk will be part of this release, but again, it certainly bodes well for the growth of the genre, as a growing number of established artists begin to pass an eye over Steampunk!   For more information about Rush, do consider a visit to the website, which contains more information about their current road trip, "The Time Machine Tour", and background on their extensive career (e.g. 14 Platinum records, 24 Gold records, 3rd best selling rock band of all time, and more), at:

Rush has been into steampunk for while now; their drummer had even gotten a custom redesigned drum set that was completely steampunked out last year.

I'll be interesting to see how they'll combine their sound with the visuals. I wonder how much the definition of "steampunk music" will change when the aesthetic is picked up by more well-known groups.

I'm not a Rush fan, but those are some amazing steampunk visuals.
