On board as producer for this project is Rick Parashar (Alice In Chains, Temple Of The Dog, UPO, Pearl Jam). Currently, Rick and Nickelback are scheduled to hit the studio to start recording at Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver this upcoming Saturday (04/28). A possible title for this upcoming work is Silver Side Up.
