Title track is the second taster of their new album
Green Day have offered a second taster of their new album ‘Revolution Radio’.
The trio have posted a lyric video of the song, which follows last month’s first single ‘Bang Bang’.
The album will be out on October 7 and is followed by a UK tour next February. The tour begins in Missouri on September 20.
Singer Billie Joe Armstrong had previously said ‘Revolution Radio’ was inspired by their anger at the state of America, and that the rise of Donald Trump since it was completed scared them.
Armstrong told Kerrang! in August:” “The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their anger. He just said: ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s fucking Hitler, man.”
Armstrong had also said that the Black Lives Matter movement had inspired the trio for their first album since the ‘Uno!’, ‘Dos!’, ‘Tre!’ trilogy in 2012, since when Armstrong has been rehab, which also inspired songs on ‘Revoluton Radio’.
