Behold, Green Day fans! A studio footage shared by the band suggests that a new album is in progress. It has been four years since the pop-punk band’s latest album release, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!, all three released in 2012.
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong posted on Instagram a black and white photo of the band and captioned it “dear friends! green day is putting out a new single called "BANG BANG" August 11. stay tuned for more details.. photo by Frank Maddocks,” and finally Armstrong topped it off with a hashtag #mynewband. Four days ago, he posted another one of them in a recording studio with the caption “jamming with friends #8daysleft #bangbang.” Talk about teasing their devoted fanbase!
According to Nik Rivers, a radio DJ from 107.7-FM Buffalo who has heard the new single, BANG BANG reminded him of “early, punk Green Day” with “hints of Kerplunk and the rawness of 39 Smooth.”
It is safe to say that true blood Green Day supporters are stoked to hear the new single this coming Thursday. Hopefully this will be an amazing comeback for this 30-year old pop-punk band who is definitely proving that punk is not dead.
