Nickelback have revealed they are working on a new album, their first in four years.
Speaking to Tulsa Music Stream, Nickelback's bassist Mike Kroeger (brother of frontman Chad) revealed that recording of the album is happening "right now" in Canada but that there is no current release date set because the band are self-supporting themselves as both their own record label and management.
"Release dates are primarily arrived at by business interests, like record labels and whatever. We don’t have one of those," he revealed.
"We’re doing it on our schedule, at our own pace, and it’ll be done when it’s done. We feel that you can make a good record and be late, but you can’t, or you shouldn’t, make a sh**ty record to be on time. So we won’t be pressed for time."
He continued: "We’re doing what we wanna do when we wanna do it. We’re paying for everything. Nobody can tell us what to do."
Nickelback have so far released nine studio albums, the most successful of which is their first and so far only Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, 2002's Silver Side Up, which has amassed chart sales of 1.13 million. Their last full-length record, 2017's Feed The Machine, reached Number 3 on the UK's Official Albums Chart.
On the singles front, while the group are yet to notch up a UK Number 1, their biggest hit, the satirical Rockstar from 2008, reached Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart.
