About this deal

And after all, the album still averages out in usual Nickelback fashion, in which there’s no edge or transgression, or ambition outside of the broadest plays for the down-the-middle rock crowd. Some could point out High Time as the low point, with its jaunty southern-rock croak that further compounds how lame of a song about weed this is, as well as how infernally pleased with itself it sounds about the exact same thing. Yes, Chad Kroeger still sings with that voice, but he’s got conviction; there’s enough snarl to play the hard-edged rockstar as there is earnestness to sell his pretensions towards depth and sincerity. It’s all playing the hits, as it were; if Feed The Machine’s assertions to rising up were a bit too radical, Get Rollin’ is back to good ol’ terra firma with another helping of everything the fans know and love.

On August 31, 2022, video of the band's video-shoot for the lead single " San Quentin" was posted online by fans who attended video-shoot via their social media posts. Texas band Snowblind Revival say Nickelback’s 2005 hit Rockstar borrows “a substantial amount of the music” from one of their own songs. Just like every other band that has to do this stuff, you wanna get a chance to see your fans all around the world. I’m gonna play this guitar solo 40 more times for another three days and make sure it’s just exactly how we want it as opposed to deadline, deadline, deadline.I don’t know how we sort of did that and how we got the acceptance from our fans to be able to do that, but we’re very lucky because we don’t have to record the same kind of music thinking to ourselves, ‘Well, the fans are expecting this, so we’ve just gotta give 'em a whole album of that. And to a degree, you can kind of let them off the hook for it, seeing as vast experimentation has never been in their nature. Well, we should have been making a record a lot sooner, with all that time off [due to the coronavirus pandemic]. When the subject of a release date came up, Mike said “it’ll be done when it’s done”, explaining that he and band would rather not be confined to a timescale for fear of making “a shitty record”. In early 2019, band members spoke of recording a tenth studio album, though Chad Kroeger conceded there was no timetable or rush for the band to complete it.

Laughs] And yeah, we took our time with it, which was just a wonderful luxury, to be able to sit back and [go], ‘No. On August 14, 2020, the band released a cover of the Charlie Daniels Band song " The Devil Went Down to Georgia", featuring Dave Martone. The Canadian megastars don't merely get away with it – the song's an energised strutter with cool hooks, licks that Lenny Kravitz would nod to, and a flyaway guitar solo that's as good as anything they've done. On May 12, 2023, Nickelback announced an expanded deluxe edition of the album will be released on June 3, 2023, with an alternate blue cover.This is Nickelback’s tenth album, and it couldn’t be clearer how much they’re resting on their laurels; hell, even they themselves probably wouldn’t deny it at this point. Look, if you’re actively looking for Nickelback reviews to validate some latent desire to see them torn to shreds and continue the longstanding narrative around them, maybe it’s worth re-examining why that’s something you want. This version of Get Rollin’ is an 8-panel digipak CD with foil stamping on the front cover that features four bonus acoustic versions of songs on the album. During an interview with WRAT radio station, lead vocalist Chad Kroeger spoke about the lyrical inspiration for "San Quentin", saying: "I met the San Quentin prison warden at a party.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. As for the latter, Nickelback clearly know how popular they are and how to win over that existing audience. They’re not the best either—not by a long shot—but they’ve clearly got some talent and know what they’re doing when it comes to the music they’re making. If anything, it’s a similar end to where a lot of country music was in the 2010s, slightly in execution but mostly in ethos. Granted, that’s not to excuse the clangers that are also prone within that usual package, of which Get Rollin’ continues to have its fair share.Mike Kroeger spoke of his personal desire to move in more of a heavy metal direction, or wanting to do an album of Slayer cover songs.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. But even saying all that, there can be a certain degree of embarrassment felt from sticking up for a band like this, especially when a new album comes out. The album's lead single " San Quentin" was released on September 7, 2022, accompanied by an official lyric video. Even on its ‘heavy’ moments, that still applies (even if both Skinny Little Missy and Vegas Bomb end up clunkier and more heavy-footed than particularly powerful).The branding they’ve picked up has made it an unavoidable thorn to be pulled at, though somewhat futilely given that any critical reevaluation of Nickelback is effectively pointless.
