Rock band Nickelback is primed to collect is sixth top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart next week. Industry forecasters suggest the group's new release, No Fixed Address, could sell around 65,000 copies in the week ending Nov. 23.

The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Nov. 26.

How Nickelback Unwinds After Releasing a New Album

No Fixed Address is the act's first album for Republic Records after a long tenure with Roadrunner Records. The band's final studio release for Roadrunner was 2011's Here and Now, which debuted and peaked at No. 2. The quartet released a greatest hits for the label in 2013 titled The Best of Nickelback: Volume 1, which reached No. 21.

The new album's lead single, "Edge of a Revolution," spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart, marking the group's eighth No. 1. They first topped the list with their mainstream breakthrough hit "How You Remind Me," which led the tally for 13 weeks in 2001.

Nickelback's new album might be one of only two new arrivals in next week's top 10. The other is One Direction's likely No. 1 album: Four. The vocal group's fourth album, released on SYCO/Columbia Records, should bow with over 400,000 copies sold. If it lands at No. 1, it will be the fourth consecutive chart-topper for the quintet, following their previous studio efforts Up All Night, Take Me Home (both hit No. 1 in 2012) and Midnight Memories (2013).

Taylor Swift's current leader, 1989, will probably slip to No. 2 on the new chart, but could still sell over 200,000.
