Nickelback returns with 'Here And Now,' first album in three years
Nickelback will release its seventh studio album, “Here And Now” on Nov. 21.
Produced by the band, the set is the follow-up to 2008’s “Dark Horse,” which sold more than 3 million copies in the U.S. alone.
Nickelback recorded the album in Mountain View Studios in Vancouver. Frontman Chad Kroeger said in a statement, “We entered the studio this year with a vision, and it all came together. We’re extremely happy with the results.”
He doesn’t share what that vision is, but fans will get some glimpse on Sept. 26, when the rock group will take the unusual step of releasing two singles simultaneously: “When We Stand Together” will go to pop radio and “Bottoms Up” will ship to rock radio. They will be available on iTunes the next day.
This year also also marks the 10th anniversary of the band’s breakthrough song “How You Remind Me,” from its debut Road Runner album “All The Right Reasons.” Since then, the group has sold close to 50 million albums worldwide.
Nickelback will launch a world tour in early 2012.
