Multi-platinum rock band Nickelback has announced that they will be releasing Here and Now November 21 on Roadrunner Records, a Warner Music Group label.
Roadrunner Records will release two singles simultaneously. “When We Stand Together” and “Bottoms Up” will ship to Pop and Rock radio stations respectively on September 26, 2011 and will be available for sale digitally September 27, 2011.
Nickelback will embark on a new world tour in support of the release in early 2012 with dates to be announced shortly.
Produced by Nickelback and recorded at Mountain View Studios, Vancouver, BC, Here and Now is Nickelback’s seventh studio record and is the follow up to 2008’s Dark Horse which has been certified 3-times platinum, racking up over five million digital single sales and more than 52 million video plays over the course of the album’s campaign, according to Roadrunner Records.
“We’re four people who love making music, the way we like to make it,” says Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. “We entered the studio this year with a vision, and it all came together. We’re extremely happy with the results, and can’t wait to share them with our fans.”
Roadrunner Records president Jonas Nachsin added, “Through our many years of working with Nickelback, we have always been amazed by the band’s continuing ability to record songs and albums that inspire and thrill millions. After hearing the newest material, we are sure they have done it again, and we are dedicated and eager to promote the band across the globe.”
Nickelback is one the biggest rock bands in the world having sold almost 50 million albums worldwide. Since their 2001 breakthrough hit song “How You Remind Me,” Nickelback has sent 18 singles rocketing onto various Billboard charts, says Roadrunner Records.
Originally founded in 1980 in the Netherlands, Roadrunner Records earned its place as one of the leading international independent record labels. Established primarily as a hard rock label, Roadrunner, a member of the Warner Music Group family of labels, now boasts depth and variety in its artists.
