the black dahlia murder band promo thrash hits

Everyone videos their wedding these days, right? Sure, everyone says it’s because they want a permanent record of The Happiest Day Of Their LivesTM, though we’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that it’s because no-one wants to miss out of blagging £250 out of Harry Hill if something ridiculous goes down.

Something like The Black Dahlia Murder throwing down on the dancefloor at the reception, to give one example.

Nickelback sign $70 million deal

July 10th, 2008

Nickelback Chad Kroeger Line Nation Roadrunner Records Thrash Hits

Nickelback definitely want to be rockstars and Live Nation are going to let them – to the tune of $70 million (roughly £35 million).

Sadly, the mega-selling Canadians still have to release two albums on their current label, Roadrunner Records so they won’t be joining their new home until 2010. Other artists on Live Nation include Madonna, Jay-Z and U2. Nickelback really are that big.

The new deal is not just limited to releasing three albums but also includes tour profits, merchandise sales, broadcast rights and fan club membership fees. Live Nation clearly want a slice of every pie around.

It’s not that Nickelback were doing badly. ‘Rockstar’ has been in the UK Singles Chart for nine months now and has been named the second biggest-selling single of 2008 (after Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’, which was covered by both Biffy Clyro and Plain White T’s). And they’re going on a massive arena tour this autumn.

With all that cash in their pockets, they’ll definitely be able to afford that bathroom they want to play baseball in, with that king size tub that can fit ten people in. That tub will be useful for the baseball team after the game. It all makes sense.

Alternatively, Chad Kroeger might want to spend his share of the money on a chauffeur after being convicted of drink-driving earlier this year. Whoops. I’m sure he’s not that bothered right now.
