The band credited with keeping the rock business afloat last year is back with a new album. Today, Nickelback announce that the title of the follow-up to 2005’s All The Right Reasons will be Dark Horse. It’s scheduled for release on Nov.18 and was co-produced by the band with Mutt Lange, Shania Twain’s soon-to-be ex and the man responsible for Def Leppard’s larger-than-life sound.
The Vancouver-based four-piece surpassed all post-Creed-era expectations by selling 7 million copies of Reasons. But will their upcoming sixth record (the final album for longtime label Roadrunner Records) break the bank? With a multi-million-dollar, three-album/three-tour LiveNation deal hanging in the wings, the pressure is most certainly on. As is the competition: American Idol winner David Cook’s debut also drops on Nov. 18.
