Billie Joe Armstrong has confirmed that new music from Green Day is in the pipeline, two years after their last album was released.
The Green Day frontman responded directly to a fan on Instagram, after they asked when new music can be expected from the punk icons.
“I’m writing new songs for gd now,” Armstrong worte.
Although Armstrong failed to provide any more details, it seemingly acts as confirmation that work has begun on the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Revolution Radio’ – which was described as NME as their strongest work since ‘American Idiot.’
It comes after Armstrong teased a performance with Foxboro Hot Tubs last month. The Green Day side project, featuring all three members, released an album called ‘Stop Drop And Roll!!!’ a decade ago. They made their live debut in Arkansas in 2008. The following year, the band rocked up in London for a tiny impromptu gig at Islington’s Garage venue.
Meanwhile, Green Day’s influence recently proved to be out of this world ,a fter the band revealed their unexpected connection to NASA’s current mission to study the surface of Mars.
The InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) Lander touched down on the red planet’s atmosphere in November.
After it was confirmed the lander had successfully reached Mars, Green Day took to their official Twitter account to reveal their link to the project. “Officially landed on Mars,” they wrote. “‘Green Day Since 1986’ was etched on a chip on the @NASAInSight Mars Lander that landed at Elysium Planitia today. Out of this world.”
