You’re either gonna love this or hate this.
Nickelback have just announced their new 10th studio album, ‘Get Rollin,’ along with a music video for the opening track ‘San Quentin.’
It’s been five years since the band that everyone-loves-to-hate released new music, with their previous album Feed The Machine dropping back in 2017.
“We’ve spent the last few years making a record at a pace that gave us the freedom to create and we can’t wait for everyone to hear the new music,” the band said in a statement.
“We’ve missed the fans and look forward to bringing the new songs to life on stage, so let’s Get Rollin’!”
As for the new single, it was inspired by frontman Chad Kroeger’s trip to the notorious high security California prison, San Quentin.
Guitarist Ryan Peake was asked in a recent interview by WRAT if fans would recognise the heavy track as a Nickelback tune, to which he responded, “It's actually interesting because I think Nickelback fans would know for sure,"
"I don't think it's unusual, that type of song, for us. It's not necessarily indicative of the whole album, but as far as rock, it's a heavy rock song. And if you've seen us live, you would definitely get it, too. I think it's nice, I kind of like that people are feeling like it's a surprise that we could write or we could have rock songs like that in our repertoire."
‘Get Rollin’ is set to drop on November 18th.
We know people either love or hate Nickelback, but they've gotten a fair few votes in The Rock 2000 so we know a bunch of you like them… Even if you don’t wanna admit it. (It's ok, we won't judge you either way.)
Elsewhere, the band have done a recent video with the YouTube channel ‘REACT,’ titled ‘Nickelback Reacts to Nickelback Fans React to Nickelback.’ Like the title suggests, fans listen to Nickelback songs, while the band watch their reactions in real time from a different room, before revealing to the fans that they were watching the whole time.
During the video, both the fans and the band are shown a bunch of classic Nickelback memes and it’s a pretty funny watch.
