HANNA, AB — Nickelback is up to something.

A cryptic post on social media is stirring the internet on Tuesday.

The post features the Canadian rock band's logo with the words "FRIDAY 8/14."

Nickelback's last album, Feed the Machine, dropped in June 2017.

Last October, Billboard, citing Nielsen Music, reported that streams and sales for Nickelback's "Photograph" got a huge boost after President Trump tweeted a brief clip of the song as a dig at former Vice President Joe Biden.

Twitter eventually took down Trump's tweet, citing "valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives."

Reaction to Nickelback's pandemic-era social media post is mixed so far.

Others are excited for what could be happening on Friday, Aug. 14.

Tuesday morning, Nickelback posted an additional message on Twitter: a 12-second video with drums.
