Nickelback's Tease of New Music Sounds Heavy as Hell


BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Aug 24, 2022

In years past, Nickelback have staked out heavier territory by changing production styles and picking up seven-string guitars, and a tease of new music from the Albertan outfit points to the 'Back's latest sounding as brutal as ever.

Earlier this week (August 22), the band shared the clip found below, in which a slamming drum part gives way to some anxious, dissonant dyads, which some may know colloquially as "panic chords."

This is all to say that the all-too-brief snippet is extremely metalcore, and you can hear it for yourself below. The snippet previously soundtracked an earlier teaser from July that showed the band at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles.

Nickelback's most recent album remains 2017's Feed the Machine. In September, frontman Chad Kroeger and guitarist Ryan Peake will perform at the 2022 Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala.
