Nickelback broke the news in an Instagram post on Thursday, Feb. 15.

"Join us for a candid look back at our history as a band – and the love for the music and for our fans that kept us going each step of the way," the post says. It also included a brief trailer.

"Some of it hurts," frontman Chad Kroeger said of the criticism the band has faced over the years. "I don't have to go and try to win over someone who doesn't like my band. That sounds like torture, probably for both of us."

The film which debuted last September at the Toronto International Film Festival will be distributed to 1,350 theaters in 30 different countries, Loudwire reported.

Tickets will be on sale at 10 a.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 22. Fans can sign up for more information on this website, which also includes a synopsis.

The movie originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2023.

"This film tells the real story of Nickelback from their humble beginnings in Alberta, to the explosive global success of 'How You Remind Me' in 2001 and the record-breaking hits that followed," the summary says.

"But with that 'Rockstar' fame came an early wave of the online negativity that many other artists have faced since. In a refreshingly open, honest, and revealing account, the band discuss the conception of Nickelback and their incredible rise to the top in the 2000’s.

"They reveal the personal impact of the online vitriol, the loyalty of their fans and their decision to return after a 5-year break with a new record and a hugely successful new tour, finding themselves riding a sudden wave of online love that has introduced their music to an army of new fans."

The movie reportedly includes interviews with actor Ryan Reynolds and Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.
