It has been announced that in conjunction with Trafalgar Releasing, Gimme Sugar Productions, and Submarine Entertainment, legendary rock band Nickelback will be releasing their feature length documentary, Hate to Love: Nickelback, next month for two nights only on March 27th and 30th in cinemas worldwide.

The documentary first premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and yells the authentic story about the band from their humble beginnings in Hanna Alberta, to their explosive global success in 2001 and the highs and lows that followed thereafter.

Directed by Leigh Brooks and produced by Ben Jones, the film celebrates the loyalty of Nickelback fans and delves into the years of online vitriol while exposing the personal impact it had on each of the band members themselves.

The film also unveils the rock groups decision to return after a 5-year break with a new record and a wildly successful sold-out tour, finding themselves riding a sudden wave of online love that has introduced their music to an army of new fans and audiences worldwide.

“Nickelback has been such an influence on our music culture throughout the years, said Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing. We are thrilled to bring the story of their journey to stardom and the importance of their passionate fans’ support through the decades to cinemas worldwide.

Tickets for the global theatrical release of Hate To Love: Nickelback go on sale beginning February 22 at 10am ET at The feature-length documentary will be distributed to over 1350 locations across 30 countries.

We are very excited to finally bring this film to theatres this Spring. It’s been a long road to get this project across the finish line and we must thank Ben Jones and Leigh Brooks for all of their hard work. We hope everyone enjoys our story, fans, friends or otherwise,” Nickelback says in a press release.
