From Our Editors
Having honed their chops on their first two albums, Curb and The State, Chad Kroeger and Co.'s major breakthrough came in 2001 with the smash single “How You Remind Me” from their third album, Silver Side Up. The record piled riffs that chugged like a locomotive running on lava atop lyrics that appealed to everyone’s inner angel and devil. Needless to say, it transformed Nickelback into an inescapable juggernaut. Named Band of the Decade by Billboard in 2009, Nickelback has sold nearly 45 million albums worldwide, placed 20 singles on the charts, and seen its new seventh release, Here and Now, debut at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and spawn four hit singles so far with “When We Stand Together,” "Bottoms Up,” “Lullaby,” and “This Means War.” The record is the biggest international release in Nickelback’s history and includes a No. 1 debut in Canada.
Due to popular demand, the band is extending its North American tour behind the born-platinum Here and Now. As drummer Daniel Adair recently told Billboard, this tour promises the band's “biggest, baddest, most over-the-top show yet." Expect expanded peripheries from special effects and pyrotechnics while the group blazes through hit after horsepowered hit.
