    Green Day is returning with their first album since their 2012 musical trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!. It's called Revolution Radio and will be released October 7th via Reprise. In a statement about the forthcoming record, the band said, "Revolution Radio is a movement for lost souls to come together... dance together... sing together... and most of all, find each other. That's what the spirit of Green Day has been about since day one."

    Along with the announcement of the upcoming record, Green Day also released its first single "BANG BANG". Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong told Rolling Stone about his inspiration for the track, "Yeah. It's about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media. There's this sort of rage happening, but it's also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted. To get into the brain of someone like that was freaky. It freaked me out. After I wrote it, all I wanted to do was get that out of my brain because it just freaked me out."

    Apparently the title track, "Revolution Radio" was inspired by a protest march Billie Joe saw in New York. He told Rolling Stone, "I was just watching this controlled chaos, and it was going and happening all over the country. I was feeling that people don't want to feel obsolete in the things that we care about. That's sort of what the song is about."

    Revolution Radio tracklist:

    1. Somewhere Now
