Green Day confirm work on new album

The trio have been recording in Los Angeles and London

Green Day have confirmed that they’ve been recording a new studio album this year.

The Billie Joe Armstrong-led trio, who released their 13th and latest record ‘Father Of All Motherfuckers’ in 2020, recently shared a video on TikTok that documents their time on the road in 2022.

In the clip, we see behind-the-scenes footage of the band as well as some live performance shots. “WTF WHAT a year,” Green Day wrote in the caption.

Armstrong and co. went on to reveal that they’d been “recording our [new] record in London & LA” in between the long-awaited UK and European leg of their Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, and their many other dates elsewhere.

Green Day didn’t offer any further information about their upcoming 14th album.

Back in January, the group previewed a snippet of new music in a brief video on social media. At one point in the upload, the year “1972” was scrawled onto a studio wall – referring to when each band member was born.

It came shortly after Green Day posted a short clip of them recording material at RAK Studios in London.

In a four-star review of ‘Father Of All Motherfuckers’, NME wrote: “[Green Day] eschew the politics and have a good old knees-up on their raucous 13th album”, adding: “‘Father Of All’ is a unicorn puking a rainbow. Don’t try to make sense of it. Just enjoy.”

Meanwhile, Green Day are set to release a 25th anniversary reissue of their fifth album ‘Nimrod’ on January 27. The trio have already previewed the collection with an unearthed demo from that era, ‘You Irritate Me’.
