Rush fans can look forward to an upcoming reissue of the legendary Canuck prog-rockers' 1974 self-titled debut album in 2014.

According to an article posted Dec. 25 at TheGlobeAndMail.com courtesy of RushIsABand.com, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have plans to release a special 40th anniversary edition of the eponymous studio album, which helped launch them on the road to international stardom.

Originally released on the Mercury label, Ivar Hamilton, VP of catalogue marketing for current owners of the label, Universal Music Canada, spoke of Rush's active participation in the new project in a new Globe and Mail interview, saying that the band members are "very involved" in next year's 40th-anniversary reissue.

"Rush" spawned the band's first singles "In the Mood" and "Finding My Way," as well as their live show staple "Working Man" and was last remastered in 1997.

Stay tuned for more details.

The Toronto natives have been diligently working on restoring their massive back catalogue of albums, churning out a reissue of their 2002 album "Vapor Trails, titled "Vapor Trails Remixed," as well as the Atlantic-era box set in 2013.

Rush also released a live DVD/Blu-ray/CD last month, titled "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Music Video chart for the week of Dec. 7.

Did you know? Rush's 1974 self-titled debut album was the iconic power trio's only studio release that did not feature their drummer and lyricist extraordinaire Neil Peart.
