Get ready, Green Day fans! Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong promises a new album is in the works! During and Instagram Live stream, Billie Joe responded to fans’ inquiries by saying, “I’m writing new songs for gd now.”
He didn’t provide any further information on the new music or when fans may hear it. Most likely, the band is in the early stages and won’t begin recording until sometime in 2019. If we’re lucky, we may get some new music late next year. However, 2020 may be more likely.
Green Day’s last studio album, Revolution Radio, came out in October 2016. It was preceded by the singles “Bang Bang” and “Still Breathing,” and launched numerous lyric videos and music videos. In November 2017, Green Day shared their second greatest hits compilation, God’s Favorite Band, which included the new song, “Back In The USA.”
The band members also got into non-Green Day musical projects. They formed a covers band called The Coverups, and drummer Tré Cool reunited with his side band, Dead Mermaids, to release an EP in October 2018. Billie Joe started a new band called The Longshot, releasing their album Love Is For Losers – plus a number of EPs – last spring.
With their singles compilation and various side projects behind them, it’s great to know that Billie, Mike, and Tré are ready to make the next Green Day record. Billie is writing new songs now, and the band will surely record them soon enough.
Now for some fan speculation: What musical direction do you think Green Day will go in for album #13? What do you expect to hear, and what do you want to hear? When do you think we’ll get to hear the new music? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
