Nickelback’s New Album Coming in November

By September 4, 2008

Follow me on:

Nickelback – who, depending on your viewpoint, either ruined or saved mainstream rock with their monster hit ballad “How You Remind Me” – have announced that their follow-up to 2005’s All the Right Reasons will hit stores November 18. The album, which remains untitled, will be produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange, the man behind the boards for the biggest chart successes from AC/DC, Bryan Adams, Def Leppard and Lange’s ex-wife Shania Twain.

Recently signing a gargantuan distribution deal with Live Nation for future albums and concerts, Nickelback will be facing an increased amount of pressure to match the sales of their last three records: All the Right Reasons (seven-times platinum), Silver Side Up (six-times platinum) and The Long Road (three-times platinum). To be fair, no 2008 rock album has come even remotely close to those numbers – Disturbed’s Indestructible seems like it’s been on the charts forever and is only certified gold – but you can anticipate a string of “Nickelback is over!” headlines if the new disc falters at all.

As we make our predictions for its commercial chances, we’ll get our first taste of this new album when the lead single, “If Today Was Your Last Day,” debuts September 30.
