Nickelback to release new single

Canadian rockers Nickelback will release their new single, “Edge Of A Revolution”, on Tuesday, August 19.

Billboard reports the song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming album, their first since 2011's “Here And Now.”

The project will be the group’s first for Republic Records, after many years on Roadrunner.

The Republic signing was a collaboration between Universal Music Canada CEO Randy Lennox, who has a long history in working with the Vancouver-based band, and Republic Records co-founder and CEO Monte Lipman, whom Lennox says "has always shown a keen interest in every detail" of Nickelback's operation ever since the band's breakout in 2001.

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

"For me, on behalf of Republic and this company, it's about how we can make a difference in their career," he added. "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.'"

An extensive tour is planned to support the as-yet-untitled album.
