NEW NICKELBACK SINGLE ARRIVES ON MONDAY
A new single from Nickelback called "Edge Of A Revolution" was scheduled to hit the airwaves on Monday (August 18th), according to Billboard.com. The track will hit digital retailers on Tuesday (August 19th) and is taken from the Canadian act's eighth studio album. The yet-to-be-titled effort is the group's first through its new label deal with Republic Records, a division of Universal Music, and is due out this fall.
Frontman Chad Kroeger told us not long ago that keeping Nickelback's fans happy is always the priority: "We set the bar pretty high, you know, for ourselves and our fans because they're always in the forefront of our mind when we're creating new stuff, and we love giving our fans what they want. It's tough because picking out a Nickelback fan's tricky, you know, 'cause they're all over the map and they all like something different. So trying to keep all of them happy, it's a challenge."
The new disc will follow up 2011's Here And Now, which sold just over one million copies in the U.S. and was the band's final release through its original home, Roadrunner Records.
Universal Music Canada CEO Randy Lennox, who collaborated on the deal with Republic, said he was "blown away" by Nickelback's new material, adding that "the band's writing is, I think, better than ever."
Nickelback plans an "extensive" world tour in support of the new album.
