On August 14, 2020, the band released a cover of the Charlie Daniels Band song " The Devil Went Down to Georgia", featuring Dave Martone. 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 truth, it’s probably the ballads that fare the worst, between nostalgia-pandering to the nth degree on Those Days, and a slushy love song in Does Heaven Even Know You’re Missing?

And then once the riff was down, I think I screamed out this line, 'Can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin? Though this isn’t an easy listen, Body Void’s newest journey into the abyss yields a shrieking, industrial mutation of doom-metal that couldn’t fit into the blackness around them more perfectly. That can still be applied to an album like this, which isn’t even among their best, but shows a band dialling into what’s made them popular and successful for years, running with it, and producing the results that’ll ensure that keeps going for plenty of time yet to come. To be fair, they’re playing around with some spacier production touches on Tidal Wave and Just One More, or slight country-rock flavour on Steel Still Rusts; neither add any nutrition to the existing meat-and-potatoes radio-rock, but they work for what they’re going for. Yes, Get Rollin’ can be a pretty middling, pretty unimaginative album at the best of times, but if that still constitutes a belief of ‘worst band ever’, that just feels a bit disingenuous overall.

They aren’t a band with the sort of catalogue that welcomes it; instead, they’ve made lowest-common-denominator rock music forever, with occasionally the mildest change-up that’s never affected the payoff even slightly. 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. I was, like, 'There's just no way that you're the warden of San Quentin,' and everyone was, like, 'Yup. 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.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. This doesn’t beat the last album which was amazing but there are so many catchy songs on this album it still makes it addictive to listen to . But it’s weird to say this, but for 25 years it feels like someone’s been standing behind us with a cattle prod and telling us, ‘Hey, the record’s gotta be done at this time. Nickelback is the 11th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2nd best selling "foreign" group in the U.

Because, for as much as they’re retaking every step they’ve ever made on this album, they can still be okay at it. 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. Tidal Wave's summery haze is deliciously strung out, one of those hypnotic songs that gets better with each play, and its dreamlike lilt contrasts with Steel Still Rusts' serious-as-cancer cautionary tale. 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.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. And when they’re still painting with the same brush strokes as wide as the Atlantic, with minimal variety after all these years, you start to wonder what Get Rollin’ really adds to any greater conversation.

Texas band Snowblind Revival say Nickelback’s 2005 hit Rockstar borrows “a substantial amount of the music” from one of their own songs. But it almost feels compulsory to start off any long-form discussion of Nickelback with a statement like that, as it has done for years.

The album was released on November 18, 2022, with the lead single, San Quentin was released on September 7, 2022.
