Nickelback Announces They Have Been Working On A New Album And Tour At Their Own Pace
Nickelback bassist Mike Kroeger revealed that the band has started composing and recording new songs for the upcoming tenth studio album of the band at their own pace and shared their plans for their new tour during his interview with Tulsa Music Stream.
Nickelback released their ninth studio album entitled ‘Feed the Machine’ on June 16, 2017. The album was promoted by releasing two singles, ‘Song on Fire’ and ‘Must Be Nice.’ It became very popular and reached No. 5 on the US Billboard 200 in its first week. Also ‘Feed the Machine’ was No. 2 on the charts of the UK which made it the band’s highest-debuting album in the country.
Since the release of ‘Feed the Machine,’ fans have waited for a long time for Nickelback to share a few details about their new record. Nonetheless, in a previous conversation, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger had emphasized that there was no rush to finish the album and Mike Kroeger has agreed with him.
During his recent interview, Mike Kroeger mentioned that Nickelback began working on the new songs for their new album in Canada with their own schedule by highlighting that the absence of a record label pressure on them. He stated that they were paying for everything so that they had enough time to produce good records. He also added that they were planning a tour for the next summer without sharing any further details.
In Kroeger’s words, he said:
“Music is being composed and recorded up in Canada. We were out there, and something came up and our producer had to take some time off. So I took that opportunity to return to Los Angeles with family and spend a little bit of time at home. But I’ll be headed back up there in a couple of weeks to pick it up again.
Release dates are primarily arrived at by business interests, like record labels and whatever. We don’t have one of those. We’ve been managing ourselves for about a year. So, the answer is no. We’re doing it on our schedule, at our own pace, and it’ll be done when it’s done. ‘Cause, we’ve blown up deadlines in the past lots of times. Because we feel that you can make a good record and be late, but you can’t, or you shouldn’t, make a shitty record to be on time. So we won’t be pressed for time.
In this case, we don’t have to worry about that, ’cause we’re on our own schedule. We’re doing what we wanna do when we wanna do it. We’re paying for everything. Nobody can tell us what to do. We just have to decide when we wanna go on tour. It turns out we’re booking a tour for next summer. So we’ll have to get some stuff squared away and out there to the people in advance of that.”
As it can be seen from Kroeger’s words, Nickelback will continue to produce materials and plan their tour at their own pace. Nonetheless, it seems like even this announcement was enough for the fans who cannot wait to finally get a new Nickelback record.
