Nickelback will follow up international dates early next year with a slate of North American performances as the band continues its "Dark Horse World Tour."

The stateside slate of dates kicks off with four Canadian stops that begin April 6 in London, Ontario, and the Grammy-nominated outfit will then concentrate on the eastern portion of the US, with performances in Washington, DC (4/13), Orlando (4/19) and Atlanta (4/21), among others. The run currently concludes with an April 24 show in Tulsa, OK, though more concerts will be added in the coming weeks, according to a press release.

The outing will also feature special guests Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown; more opening acts will be announced soon.

Tickets for most shows go on sale Dec. 4 via Live Nation, though fan-club members will have access to presale tickets beginning Nov. 27.

"Dark Horse," Nickelback's sixth studio set, surfaced last November and debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200. Co-produced by the band and Grammy Award-winning producer Robert "Mutt" Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard), the platinum-certified album won five Juno Awards in the band's native Canada, including Rock Album of the Year.

"Dark Horse" follows the group's 2005 release, "All The Right Reasons." The new effort's latest single, "Never Gonna Be Alone," is currently hitting airwaves and the video for the track is currently streaming at the band's website.

    I like how the dudes voice holds up live, with his unorthodox sound it's actually impressive. But for the most part they're not a very creative band. The songwriting is generic with straight forward lyrics that don't make you interpret anything for yourself, while every release seems to be recycled. If we don't discuss it won't get fixed people :/
