Nickelback's fifth studio album All the Right Reasons has been certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, celebrating 10 million sales and streams.  

"We're very thankful to have an album that so many people have appreciated," said guitarist Ryan Peake in a statement. "We never imagined this would be possible and for that we are humbled and so grateful 10 million times over. We are honored to have reached this milestone with All the Right Reasons, none of which would be possible without all the amazing people that have supported us." 

All the Right Reasons debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and spent more than 200 weeks on the tally. It has sold 7.96 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. The set launched five top 40-charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including three top 10s: "Photograph" (No. 2), "Far Away" (No. 8) and "Rockstar" (No. 6).

The RIAA diamond certification blends traditional album sales (one album sale equals one unit), tracks sold from an album (10 tracks sold equals one unit) and on-demand audio and/or video streams (1,500 streams equals one unit).

Nickelback is currently preparing its ninth studio album, Feed The Machine, for release on June 9 with North American tour plans for the summer. The band will kick off its run of dates starting June 23 at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana, and wrap Oct. 1 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. 

Frontman Chad Kroeger added in a statement, "When we started this band, never in our wildest imagination did we ever think we would get a label deal and put a record out, get a song on the radio, tour outside of our home territory and be gifted with the opportunity to meet so many amazing friends, supporters and talented musicians the world over along the way. These were all just dreams that three guys from Hanna, Alberta never could have fathomed. Thank you to everyone that has embraced All the Right Reasons in their own way. To this day, it remains a very special album to us and we are truly humbled to all of you for making every dream we could have hoped for come true."
