Nickelback release video for Song On Fire

Nickelback have released a video for “Song On Fire”, the second single from their forthcoming album, “Feed The Machine.”

With a clip directed by frequent collaborator Nigel Dick, the tune follows the record’s title track as the latest preview to the Canadian band’s ninth studio effort.

"As we were working on this song, a very personal one for me, we all instantly connected to it on different levels through our own experiences," explains frontman Chad Kroeger. "Everyone has a need to love or be loved and we've all been hurt or felt loss. It's about your heart yearning for something that your rational mind knows is impossible to hold on to. There is a universally, haunting finality to losing love and we found 'our protagonist' (in this song) trying to reclaim it; but not knowing where to begin or that it might ultimately be in vain."

Due June 16, Nickelback co-produced “Feed The Machine” with Chris Baseford (Slash, Shinedown) as part of a new global record deal with BMG.

The group will launch the album with a North American tour that will begin in Noblesville, IN on June 23 - see dates below.

Special guests on the tour include Shaman’s Harvest on all shows, Daughtry on all of the US concerts plus appearances in Toronto, ON and Montreal, QC, and Cheap Trick on the fall western Canadian leg.

“Feed The Machine” marks the follow-up to 2014’s “No Fixed Address”, which debuted on the US Billboard 200 at No. 4 with opening week sales of 80,000 copies while also opening at No. 1 on the US Top Rock Albums chart.
