Nickelback are a phenomenally successful touring band whose tours have grossed in excess of $100 million thus far and have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

In support of the album, the band has recently appeared on, MuchMusic, Entertainment Tonight Canada, eTalk, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The American Music Awards. Critics and fans alike are praising Dark Horse. The New York Times raved, "Nickelback… has been responsible for some of the heaviest pop hits of this decade and more notably, it has almost single handedly preserved the idea of the arena-rock ballad." Entertainment Weekly declared, ""The only sure thing in the music business in 2008.""
The album, Dark Horse, debuted #1 on the Canadian charts and the first single, ""Gotta Be Somebody,"" is the #1 single in Canada. At press time, the track has an estimated North American audience of over 60 million.
