Cheap Trick will release their next album on Big Machine Records on April 1. In addition, the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 8. Both announcements were made on Thursday morning (Dec. 17).

“Coinciding with their entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I am beyond proud and excited to announce that Cheap Trick are the newest members of the Big Machine Records family,” said Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta. “As a band, they’ve never stopped rock’n the free world and they play every night with as much conviction as their first power-pop-punk club shows from the mid ’70’s. I can’t wait for Cheap Trick fans everywhere to have the new album.”

“We can’t thank the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame enough for honoring Cheap Trick. Thanks to all the fans who have supported us for all these years and to the Hall of Fame members who cast their votes. We are excited,” said Cheap Trick bass guitarist Tom Petersson.

The band’s upcoming album, Bang Zoom Crazy… Hello, was produced by Julian Raymond. It will be the band’s 17th studio album and first in more than five years. Their hits include “Surrender,” “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police” and “The Flame.”

The 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled for April 8.
