Presto is Rush's 13th studio album released in 1989. The album was recorded at LeStudio in Morin Heights and at McClear Place in Toronto. Presto was their first with Atlantic Records which the band signed to in early 1989 after a longstanding relationship with Mercury/Polygram.
The album's lyrical centerpiece is its atmospheric single "The Pass", in which Neil Peart addresses teenage isolation and the tragic romanticism of youth suicide.
Adoring fans turned out in droves for one the few remaining chances to experience Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart performing together in concert during their final major tour which began in May 2015. Along with the R40 tour, the band reissue their studio albums on high-quality vinyl.
