Nickelback fans have much to cheer about with the release of the band's new song "Edge of Revolution." The track is the lead single from the multi-Platinum selling Canuck rockers' as-yet-untitled 8th studio album, which will be released this fall on Republic Records.
The multi-Juno winners debuted the lyric video on Aug. 19 at their official website at Nickelback.com and are streaming it for free in its entirety. "Revolution" premiered on rock radio Aug. 19 via Clear Channel stations.
The 4:04 minute clip reveals lead singer-songwriter Chad Kroeger and company at the top of their game. The instrumental intro kicks off with powerful riff-driven "call-answer" lead guitars, underscored by Daniel Adair's rock solid drumming. The anthemic protest rocker chugs along at a "fists in the air" pace with frontman Kroeger taking aim at a variety of establishment targets ranging from the C.I.A. to Wallstreet through the verses, leading to the final stanzas of the "up yours" hook-laden chorus, "No we won't lay down and accept this fate. Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution."
"Edge of a Revolution" will find a comfortable fit in the band's live show. Universal Music Canada CEO Randy Lennox recently confirmed Nickelback have "an extensive tour planned" in 2015. Last month, Nickelback hinted at a tour plans, posting pictures of an inception document, bearing the title "Nickleback Tour 2015," accompanied by a teaser caption, which said, "Busy day of meetings... Top Secret!"
The "How You Remind Me" hitmakers recently completed two videos for the forthcoming album, which included work on "Revolution" as well as the scheduled second single "What are you Waiting for?" The Hanna, Alberta natives tweeted a number of teaser updates, which included shots of guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair working on the video, clues about director identity (Wayne Isham), as well as release date information on the songs.
