Rush will be honored with The Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award at the 4th annual Revolver Golden God Awards in April.
Prog-rock pioneers Rush, who will release their 19th studio album, "Clockwork Angels", in May, join a list of past honorees that includes Motley Crue, Lemmy Kilmister of Motrhead and Ozzy Osbourne.
The award will be presented by Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, whose new record, "Rize Of The Fenix", hits stores on May 15.
"We are honored and delighted to receive this honor - especially because it will be presented by Jack and Kyle," said Rush drummer Neil Peart. "Our 'lifetimes' are not over yet, and we dearly hope our 'achievements' are not either, so I suppose you could say that to us this is the 'So Far, So Good' award."
"Rush was the most impressive band, musically, when I was just learning about rock," said Black. "Weirdly, they got your body moving in interpretive-dancing ways, but it was still aggressive. Their stuff was just so complex and so tasty!"
The fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods Award Show will take place Wednesday, April 11th, at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles,CA.
