2016 Album On Picture Disc LP!
Features "Bang Bang," "Revolution Radio" & "Still Breathing!"


The members of Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. The band formed in the late 1980s and consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tré Cool and guitarist and backing vocalist Jason White.

Billie Joe Armstrong was driving into Manhattan one day when he came across a throng of protesters. Outraged by a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer for the killing of Michael Brown, they filled the streets and backed up traffic for miles. Armstrong was inspired. "I got out of my car and marched with the people," he says. "It was a trip to see people rebel against the old order."

The experience inspired the title track of Green Day's new album, Revolution Radio, a collection of songs about the chaotic state of America in 2016. It’s not strictly a political concept album like American Idiot...But most songs touch on pressing social issues: "Still Breathing" is a scorcher that, according to Armstrong, "goes from the life of a junkie to the life of a gambler to the life of a single mother and a soldier and how we’re all kinda intertwined." The most incendiary song is lead single "Bang Bang," written (about the culture of a mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media).

"Revolution Radio is Green Day’s first album since Armstrong went to rehab in 2012 for prescription-pill addiction, which forced the band to postpone dozens of tour dates in the wake of their trio of albums released that same year, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! Armstrong recovered, but the band was soon sidetracked by more adversity. In 2014, bassist Mike Dirnt’s wife, Brittney, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Not long after, touring guitarist Jason White found out he had tonsil cancer. Talk of a follow up to ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! stopped. Thankfully, by late 2015, both White and Brittney Dirnt were in remission, and Green Day began work on a new LP at their studio in Oakland, producing themselves for the first time since 2000’s Warning." - rollingstone.com
