Green Day Hint at Their New Album’s Title
As Green Day prepare for the release of their new single, “Bang Bang,” this Thursday (Aug. 11), they may have dropped a hint as to the name of their new album. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s believed that the record will be called Revolution Radio.
Singer Billie Joe Armstrong posted the artwork for the “Bang Bang” single to his Instagram account along with several hashtags, one of which was “#revrad.” The words “Rev Rad” also appeared with “Bang Bang” on what seemed to be a rehearsal setlist of sorts that Armstrong posted a couple of days ago. According to NME, that’s enough for fans to make the connection as to both the title of the album and one of its songs.
The new album will be Green Day’s first full-length since they delivered a trio of records ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!, in the span of four months in 2012 and their 2015 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Once again, they’ve been working with Rob Cavallo, who produced four of Green Day’s first five releases on Warner Bros -- Dookie, Insomniac, Nimrod and American Idiot -- since early last year. Armstrong said in April 2015 that the band wasn’t going to rush things this time around.
“I’m gonna take it really slow,” he said. “I’m just gonna make sure every moment is inspired and that we have something that’s really special to us. And right now with the songs that we have, it’s going in the right direction.”
