Green Day Are About To Release Their First Single In Fucking Ages

Looks like we can add August 11th to the list of dates where massive shit does down this month – millennial punk legends Green Day have announced their first single in over three years, and yep, we’re fucking pumped!

At the start of 2016, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong took to social media teasing that Green Day’s twelfth studio album was in the pipeline. Just a short (see: sarcasm) six months later, it looks like those studio sessions may soon reach our ears – Armstrong used the power of Twitter yesterday to confirm that “Bang Bang” is on the way. No details were shared about when and where exactly we’d be able to grab a sneaky listen, but rest assured, that’ll come in due time.

Green Day’s last full-length offering came all the way back in 2012 with the ¡Uno!¡Dos! and ¡Tré! trilogy. Reception was mixed (they weren’t exactly the next three American Idiots, after all) but there are serious hopes the band will return in top form after a short break from studio shredding.

So this begs the question: other than the new single, what can we expect to come on August 11th? We’re throwing our bets in on an album announcement – but with no release date, because they’ve gotta keep the hype at an optimal peak – but let us know what you think!

Get pumped for “Bang Bang” with one of Green Day’s hugest tunes to date below!
