Prog legends Rush have a brand new film showcasing their monumental live show, conveniently coming in time for holiday shopping lists. Today (Nov. 13), Billboard is excited to premiere a sampling of the feature -- a live performance of the power trio rocking their 1982 song “Subdivisions.” 

In the video above, you’ll get the full audience panorama, a close-up of Neil Peart’s drum kit, and plenty of great shots of Geddy Lee switching between bass and keys while manning lead vocals. Footage for the film was shot at two sold-out home town shows at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, July 17 and 19, during Rush’s R40 Live 2015 tour. The collection hits stores Nov. 20.

Below, check out audio of the track, also premiering today exclusively via Billboard. The audio was produced by Rush and David Botrill, and mixed by Botrill.

The film was directed by Dale Heslip, produced by Allan Weinrib, and -- here’s a fun fact -- the cover image was shot by Major League Baseball legend Randy Johnson, who is an avid photographer and fan of the band.

R40 Live will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and on a 3-CD set, and also in CD and Blu-ray combinations.
