Green Day served up some festive new material back at Christmastime, but now the pop-punk veterans are giving their fans the gift more music.
The band have dropped a brand new single titled “Bang Bang” and confirmed that a new album named Revolution Radio will arrive on October 7 via Reprise. That’s the album artwork pictured above, while the full tracklisting can be found down below.
The LP was produced by the band themselves and recorded in Oakland, CA. According to a press release, the band’s 12th studio album hears Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool exploring “the complexities and uncertainties modern day existence” across 12 brand new “angst-ridden athems.”
“Revolution Radio is a movement for lost souls to come together… dance together… sing together… and most all, find each other,” Armstrong explained. “That’s what the spirit Green Day has been about since day one.”
“Bang Bang” serves as an introduction to the group’s latest material, and it arrived this morning (August 11) with an accompanying lyric video.
The clip is as loud, colourful and fast-moving as the song itself, featuring animated footage the three-piece rocking out amidst scenes galloping unicorns, gorillas riding nuclear weapons and even a shout-out to Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Revolution Radio will mark the follow-up to Green Day’s 2012 trilogy albums ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!
