Nickelback fans continue to wait with baited breath for a 'major' announcement from the band slated for Feb. 1. The multi-platinum sellers have been posting teaser updates over the last couple of weeks with the simple header 'Feed the Machine – Coming 2.1.17' and most recently posted a teaser video clip on Jan. 30 at their official YouTube channel.
The "How You Remind Me" hitmakers latest clip features the band in the recording studio laying down the opening riff from what's expected to be their brand new single “Feed the Machine.” The veteran Canuck rockers will release the song on Wednesday along with details about their upcoming ninth studio and a tour announcement.
The 38-second black & white clip opens with the sound of Morse code beeping in the background as the camera pans along the snarl of guitar cables along the studio floor. The clip segues to guitarist Ryan Peake performing the song's metal intro riff, followed by ex-3 Doors Down drummer Daniel Adair and bassist Mike Kroeger, who come thundering behind along with lead vocalist/guitarist Chad Kroeger. Fans can check out the clip above.
“Feed the Machine” will be Nickelback's second new song since the release of their 2014 studio album No Fixed Address. The band released a cover of Don Henley's “Dirty Laundry” late last summer that is expected to be included on the upcoming album.
Nickelback has been busy in the studio since closing the year with a previously postponed European tour, which wrapped up Oct. 22 in Liverpool, U.K. The multi-Juno winners were forced to cancel multiple dates in Europe and North America in support of No Fixed Address to allow recovery time for frontman Chad Kroeger, who required surgery on his vocal cords to remove a cyst.
Nickelback recently signed a new global record deal with BMG and already have a few outdoor U.S. gigs lined up for 2017. Stops include two shows in Iowa on July 20 in Monticello at Great Jones County Fair and in Des Moines on Aug. 8 at Iowa State Fair, as well as Aug. 24 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, at Minnesota State Fair.
