Nickelback Releasing New Album This Fall, 'Edge of a Revolution' Single Due on Tuesday
Nickelback have officially confirmed that their new album will be released this fall, also announcing the Tuesday (August 19) release of fresh single "Edge of a Revolution."

As Billboard report reads, the group has also switched labels and is now signed to Republic Records, whose CEO Monte Lipman was "blown away" by the new tunes.

"I've been a fan of the band since their inception," Lipman said. "Unfortunately, like many people, I had the opportunity to sign them and blanked, and missed one of the biggest opportunities of my career."

As the CEO further noted, "Chad [Kroeger] and the band's writing is, I think, better than ever."

Sharing a few additional praises, Lipman added, "For me, on behalf of Republic and this company, it's about how we can make a difference in their career. And that's what I convinced these guys - I said, 'You're a legacy act, and as far as I'm concerned, your trajectory is right into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I want to be a part of that.'"

Prior to hitting digital stores, the song will be exclusively premiered a day earlier (August 18) on Clear Channel. An "extensive tour" is also planned soon after the release.

As for the group's previous record, 2011's "Here and Now" sold 1.02 million copies to date according to Nielsen SoundScan. During the album break, frontman Chad Kroeger helped his wife Avril Lavigne write and produce her self-titled album, released last fall.
