Green Day are prepping their 13th album Father of All... and, well, they're hoping their new music f**ks with people.
“There’s a very fine line threading the needle for us, because we do want to try new things, but we always want to make sure it’s absolute Green Day, you know?” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong explained to Kerrang!. “It’s a very fine line – clever and stupid (laughs). But Green Day’s credo is mischief, no matter what. We’re always down for mischief and we want to f**k with people… to the point of it being abusive!”
“Do you want to go back and do the same old thing?” drimmer Tré Cool added. “We don’t want to do what everyone would expect us to do, so it was just kinda mischief and making it fun. That was the bottom line of it.”
The trio recently dropped the first single off the upcoming album, which happens to also be the title track. They also announced the epic Mega Hella Tour with Weezer and Fall Out Boy, which kicks off next summer.
Green Day are performing at this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in September alongside a lineup of superstar artists. Fans across the country can tune in and watch an exclusive live stream of the show via The CW App and CWTV.com. Then, on October 2nd and 3rd, relive all of the epic performances from the weekend during a televised special on The CW Network at 8pm ET/PT. And leading up to the official television special, The CW will also air an hour-long Best Of Special on Sunday, September 29th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
