Multi-platinum rock band Nickelback will be releasing Here and Now November 21, 2011 on Roadrunner Records, a Warner Music Group label, but fans can stream the full album free exclusively on the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com/Nickelback) starting today for the week leading up to the release date.
As a testament to Nickelback’s rare versatility in achieving multiple successes at various radio formats for more than a decade, Roadrunner Records released two singles simultaneously – “When We Stand Together” and “Bottoms Up.” Both are climbing the charts with “When We Stand Together” at # 13 on the Hot AC chart while “Bottoms Up” is currently in the #2 spot on the Rock chart.
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 widely successful Dark Horse which has been certified 3-times platinum, approaching eight million digital single sales and more than 61 million video plays over the course of the album’s campaign.
Nickelback is one the biggest rock bands in the world having sold almost 45 million worldwide. Since their 2001 breakthrough hit song “How You Remind Me,” Nickelback has sent 18 singles rocketing onto various Billboard charts.
Nickelback’s now classic All The Right Reasons insured Nickelback an indelible place in rock history, spending a staggering 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200, certified 8-times platinum in the U.S. and having sold more than 11 million copies worldwide, topping charts in four countries. All The Right Reasons spun off seven multi-format singles and made Nickelback the first band in Nielsen BDS history to send five singles onto the CHR charts. All five of the album’s videos hit No. 1 on VH1’s playlist, while Nickelback has sold almost 12 million single digital downloads and more than 9 million ringtones of the album’s songs. All The Right Reasons won the American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Album and helped the quartet to three Billboard Music Awards in 2006 and a pair of Juno Awards in Canada. And on the road, Nickelback has sold more than 2 million concert tickets over the course of the album cycle.
