Love 'em or leave 'em: Nickelback has new album, but isn't feeling too talkative

TORONTO - Nickelback has just released one of the most anticipated albums of the year, "Dark Horse," and yet there have been virtually no profiles of the rock band in newspapers across the country.

It's not that journalists haven't asked to talk to frontman Chad Kroeger or one of his bandmates, but Nickelback has decided they've been burned and slagged enough times by the print media and they're only doing radio and television interviews, for now.

A spokesman for EMI Music Canada said the band's management had no comment on Nickelback's decision to reject interview requests. But given the glee and careful thought that reviewers have taken in thinking up clever ways to trash the Canadian band in the past, maybe it's understandable why Nickelback has an aversion to the media.
