NICKELBACK Starting To Work On New Music

NICKELBACK had a rough 2015 and it appears that the Canadian act intends to put the last 12 months in the rearview mirror by getting to work on a new record. According to The Pulse Of Radio, frontman Chad Kroeger tweeted on Monday (January 25) that the band is working on new tunes — although he jokingly added, "Bad news for us: (Kanye West's) Swish will be the best album of all time." The highly anticipated new album from West is due out on February 11.

Kroeger told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that making each new record different is what keeps things interesting for NICKELBACK. "When we get in the studio to take on the daunting task of making a NICKELBACK record, all the band members have such diverse tastes in music that it's a lot about keeping us happy," he said. "We don't want to get onstage and play the same kind of music for two hours. We like to make sure that everybody in the band is happy and that seems to be keeping the fans happy."

Last June, NICKELBACK canceled the majority of its tour dates in support of the band's eighth album, "No Fixed Address", so that Kroeger could recover from surgery to remove a cyst on his vocal cords.

NICKELBACK filed a $13 million insurance claim with Lloyd's of London after scrapping the tour. But Lloyd's sued to cancel the singer's insurance, alleging that Kroeger already had the throat condition and failed to disclose it before taking out the policy.

Earlier this month, NICKELBACK countersued Lloyd's, claiming that the firm is making false allegations about the band so that it doesn't have to pay out the claim.

"No Fixed Address" debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 album chart in November 2014.
