You can pre-order today at www.greenday.com and when you do, you will receive an instant download of the first single, “Bang Bang,” which is now available. You can watch the lyrics video below.
Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day’s fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless — solidifying the band’s reign as one of the leading voices in rock music. The first single, “Bang Bang”, released today and inspired by recent events, marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.
“Of course the world has lost its collective mind… and me, Mike and Tré are lost souls too,” said Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “Revolution Radio is a movement for lost souls to come together… dance together… sing together… and most of all, find each other. That’s what the spirit of Green Day has been about since day one.”
More information on Revolution Radio and live dates will be revealed in the coming weeks.
