Nickelback In No Hurry To Write Next Album

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has told Billboard that the Canadian band is in no rush to begin work on the follow-up to 2017's Feed The Machine album.

Kroeger explained, "Now there isn't this urgency. It's not like you have this amount of time you have to make a record because we're going to go tour. It's not rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, with pressure from management, booking agents, record company. That's not there anymore. It's so nice and it really allows me a lot of time to, er -- drink."

Kroeger made his remarks after winning an award last week at the SOCAN Awards in Toronto as the most performed songwriter in the Canadian performing rights society's 30-year history.

Kroeger has told us that he doesn't like to write just one kind of song: "To be satiated as, you know, a songwriter, for me that requires a very diverse palate. And so, I like it when our songs are all over the map. Some of my favorite albums are the same way, when it's just a completely different theme, a completely different vibe, and those are the ones that really tend to hold my attention."

Nickelback's next scheduled live show is July 6th at SMS Equipment Stadium in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.
