Green Day’s new single is here! The song is a return to that famous punk sound that we all know and love so much from the Oakland, CA band. The new single is from the bands upcoming album entitled, Revolution Radio which will hit stores on October 7.
As Green Day has done in the past make sure to keep your eyes open as they may be playing secret shows before the albums release. For the last album, Uno they played a secret show in Orange County and Los Angeles in small venues.
So sit back relax and enjoy some new Green Day since we have waited four years for brand new music from the band.
Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Though they had already released two albums (1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), the band truly announced its arrival with 1994’s Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first GrammyÂ® Award for Best Alternative Music Performance.
Over the years, Green Day continued to top the charts with the subsequent studio albums Insomniac, Nimrod, and Warning, while entertaining millions of fans with their frenetic live shows. But it was their landmark 2004 album American Idiot that launched Green Day into the stratosphere. American Idiot debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, earned seven GrammyÂ® nominations (winning two, including Best Rock Album), and raised the bar for modern rock and roll.
In 2009, Green Day released 21st Century Breakdown, which won a 2010 GrammyÂ® Award for Best Rock Album. It spawned two hit singles: the gold â€œKnow Your Enemy,â€ which was the first song ever to top Billboardâ€™s Rock, Alternative, and Mainstream Rock charts simultaneously, and the double-platinum â€œ21 Guns,â€ which earned them three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards including Best Rock Video. Green Day also took home an American Music Award for Favorite Alternative Rock Music Artist. Later that year, Green Day collaborated with the Tony Award-winning director of Spring Awakening, Michael Mayer, for the stage musical American Idiot.
