The band has signed just recently with Republic Records and are looking forward to having a fresh start and being able to make music they feel strongly about. Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger recently made a statement saying:
“We are very excited to be releasing new music for our fans and feel it’s some of our strongest material to date. During the recording process as we looked toward the next chapter, it became clear that Monte, Randy and the entire Republic / Universal team had a shared vision and passion for this project. Their track record of artist development speaks volumes to their success and we are honored to be partners with them.”
I've listened to Edge of a Revolution myself and I have to say that I definitely like it. Musically it sounds somewhat like older Nickelback but lyrically it is full of brutally honest political lyrics. They definitely aren't hiding their feelings about all of the things going on in the world today. Now I know it's fun to hate on Nickelback, but you should give the song at least one unbiased fair listen. It's worth the few minutes. To be honest, I never understood the Nickelback hate anyway. Seems a bit unwarranted.
