Nickelback premiere two videos following tour cancellation

Nickelback are premiering two new videos from their “No Fixed Address” album just days after cancelling their North American tour following news that vocalist Chad Kroeger is to undergo throat surgery.

The song and the clip for “Get ‘Em Up” present a pair of robbers planning a bank heist; the storyline then continues in the video for the midtempo track “Satellite.”

Nickelback announced this week that Kroeger will undergo surgery in 3 weeks to remove an operable cyst on his voice box, followed by an extended period of vocal rest ordered by doctors.

“I am sorry I have to interrupt the party this summer and I am definitely not thrilled with the prospect of being silent for many weeks to come when I could be out there playing for our fans,” explainss Kroeger. “I am relying on my doctor and his team to help get my voice back in good form as quickly as possible.”

The singer thanked fans for their support, saying “Thank you so much to everyone for keeping me in their thoughts, prayers and wishing me a speedy recovery. It means so much to me.”

A full recovery is expected and Nickelback plan to return to the road for a fall European tour scheduled to start in Helsinki, Finland on September 30.

The group are expected to return to North America for shows in 2016.
