Green Day will return after four years with a new, politically-charged album called Revolution Radio.
The album is previewed with lead single, “Bang Bang”, which is written from the perspective of a school shooter.
“It’s about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media,” explains Bille Joe Armstrong. “There’s this sort of rage happening, but it’s also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted.”
Revolution Radio, due out October 7th, was self-produced by the band, the first time they’ve done so in two decades.
Green Day plan to embark on a world tour in support of the album.
Green Day – Knowledge (Operation Ivy cover) – Oakland, Live, 8-5-17, 1st row, Oakland Coliseum. Billie Joe: We need a guitar player! OK, get your ass up here 😛 ~6:10 You get to keep that guitar!
Billie Joe: Do you know how to play? You swear to God? How old are you? You’re 16? 18! How long have you been playing the guitar for? OK, get your ass up here lol
Hometown show! For ‘Know Your Enemy’, ‘Longview’ and ‘Knowledge’, Billie invited a fan to sing and play the guitar with them. 2 of the fans picked out were standing adjacent to me, lol. Many of the fans recognized each other from previous Green Day concerts. In fact, the kid who played ‘Longview and J.A.R.’ last year on the guitar and who was featured in the ‘Spotify Landmark Series: Green Day The Early Years’, was next to me in the VIP line.
For the VIPs, we received, among other things, the opportunity to watch the band sound check from the stadium’s suites. Two of the songs sound checked were ‘Homecoming’ and ‘Too Dumb to Die’, but neither was performed. Like Oakland Arena, they have an early curfew at ~11:00, so perhaps there was not enough time before the scheduled fireworks.
To further celebrate the homecoming, the band held a Pop-Up Shop at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records in Oakland for 2 days, complete with exclusive merchandise, giveaways, free Oakland Coffee, and appearances by the Drunk Bunny and the A’s Mascot, Stomper. Upon opening, there was a ~30-fan long line out the door. The first 250 Idiot Nation Fan Club members got 2 free tries on the carnival claw machine to win miniature stuffed pink or green drunk bunnies. Only 25 of the green bunnies were made and they were all in the machine. I aimed the claw to try to get one of those, but it didn’t hold on 😛 I bought a pair of posters and they gave me a free Oakland Coffee tote bag, which was nice.
The opener was Catfish and the Bottlemen, who was actually scheduled to perform last year with Green Day at Oakland Arena for Not So Silent Night 2016, but they had to cancel. Many were looking forward to seeing them as well.
