Multi-platinum, chart-topping rock band, NICKELBACK is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their ninth album, Feed The Machine (BMG)¸ set for release on Friday, June 9. Written by Nickelback and co-produced with Chris Baseford (Slash, Shinedown), first single “Feed The Machine” is a defiant rock anthem featuring blistering guitar riffs and face-melting rhythm tracks.
