Nickelback will soon release a new studio album on a new record label. The multi-Platinum selling Canuck rockers will release their upcoming 8th studio effort at a new home, Republic Records, a division of Universal Music Group.
According to a new interview posted on Aug. 15 with Universal Music Canada CEO Randy Lennox at Billboard.com, the "How You Remind Me" hitmakers have left their former U.S. label Roadrunner and will release the as-yet-untitled album via Republic this fall. Lennox also revealed the multi-Juno winners will premiere the lead single "Edge of a Revolution" on Clear Channel on Monday, Aug. 18 and release it to digital retailers Aug. 19.
In an update posted Aug. 14 at the band’s official Facebook account, the "How You Remind Me" hitmakers posted a photo of a film reel marked "Revolution," with the caption say, "two videos in two days...that's a wrap." Hashtags used in the updates indicate the videos shot were for "Edge of a Revolution" and the album's followup single, titled "What are you Waiting for?" The second single is slated to hit airwaves on Sept. 22. Lennox commented that label executives were "blown away" by the band's new material and that Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger is writing "better than ever."
Lennox also confirmed the Hanna, Alberta natives have "an extensive tour planned" in 2015. Last month, Nickelback hinted at a tour, 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!"
Prior to their recent rash of social media posts, there had been almost no news updates from Nickelback since last year, save for bandmember birthday wishes. Asides from a Greatest Hits package released last year, Kroeger and company have not released a studio album since 2011's Here and Now.
