Nickelback's past will compete with its present in the coming weeks.
Three weeks after its new studio album, "Feed the Machine," comes out on June 16, the Canadian group's first three albums -- "Silver Side Up" (2001), "The Long Road" (2003) and "All The Right Reasons" (2005) will be reissued on 140-gram vinyl on July 7.
It marks the first time the latter two titles will be released on vinyl, ever.

In a statement, guitarist Ryan Peake said that, "As a vinyl collector myself, I am elated that Rhino (Records) will be releasing three of our albums on vinyl this July. Each of these albums were pivotal for us in so many different ways and to be able to share them in this format with our supporters is humbling."
Nickelback will be supporting "Feed The Machine" with a North American tour that begins June 23 in Nobelsville, Ind.
