Mike Kroeger, the bassist for Nickelback, was recently interviewed by Tulsa Music Stream, where he discussed the group’s future plans.
Nickelback had not started any new projects since their 2017 album, “Feed The Machine,” was published. While several performers took advantage of canceling tours and events due to the pandemic to work on new material, the band did not.
Mike mentioned that they’re now in the studio creating a new album in Canada. Unfortunately, the production period ran longer than intended because their producer had to take time off.
Mike also mentioned that the future album has no firm release date since they prefer to take their time and get it right.
In addition, the bassist stated that they would return to the stage in the summer of 2022, which could indicate that the album would be released in late 2021 or early 2022, followed by a summer tour to promote the record.
On the new album, Mike Kroeger can be heard saying:
“That is happening right now. Music is being composed and recorded 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 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.”
What you just read is literally happening right this second. Canada is a hotspot for musical creation and recording. We were in the field when an emergency arose that required our producer to step away for a while.
Asked the interviewer:
“When is it going to be available?”
And Mike Kroeger shot back:
“Business concerns, like record labels and whatever, are the primary determinants of release dates. Not here; we don’t have any.
Over the past year, we’ve been handling everything on our own. This question requires a negative response. We’re working on it when we can get to it, in our own time.
Because we have a history of missing deadlines. Because in our opinion, it is possible to have a solid track record while running late, but it is impossible (and inappropriate) to have a poor track record while keeping to a strict schedule. That way, we won’t have to rush.
And since we’re in charge of our own timetable, there’s no need to worry about it either. We are following our own whims and schedules.
All expenses are on us. We will not take orders from anyone. We need only settle on a date for our tour. For more updates visit TheActiveNews.Com.
