Depending on how you feel about the band, this is either good news or bad news: Nickelback isn’t currently working on any new music.

Speaking to the Ottawa Citizen, Mike Kroeger reveals that the Canadian rockers don’t have studio time booked at the moment, feeling no pressure to put out their 10th album.

“We can do it whenever we want at our own pace and that’s the way we’re handling it, leaving Chad (Kroeger) to write some songs, but not pressuring him to produce,” says the bassist.

As for how the band feels about having so many detractors, Kroeger admits, “We just let it go by, people have their opinions and there’s nothing wrong with it. They’re entitled to their own opinions, and people will say what they say.”

Why do you think there are so many people down on Nickelback?
