12 SEPTEMBER 2011 (Toronto, ON) — Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country’s leading music company, has entered into agreement with Canada’s own international multi-platinum selling rock band, Nickelback, along with Roadrunner Records, for the band’s seventh studio album, Here And Now. The joint announcement was made today by band frontman, Chad Kroeger, and Randy Lennox, President and CEO of UMC.

Echoes Lennox, “It is an honour to have Nickelback join with us to present the next phase of their remarkable career. It is our privilege to be working alongside such an incredibly talented and determined group who, while being globally-minded artists, still celebrate the unique benefits of being a Canadian band.”
