Green Day have announced plans to release new music next week.
“Dear friends!” posted frontman Billie Joe Armstrong on his social media sites. “Green Day is putting out a new single called ‘Bang Bang’ August 11. Stay tuned for more details.”
Green Day have been working on the follow-up to the 2012 trilogy, “Uno”, “Dos” and “Tre”, since early last year.
The trio were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015 and spoke about their headspace and plans in the wake of the honor.
“There's definitely a great spirit going on,” said Armstrong at the time. “We've always been pretty charged up. Before we found any of this out, I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them. And then we heard about the Hall of Fame, and we were just blown away.”
“Yeah, I mean, we're going to take our time,” he added. “We're not going to try and pull off some, like, victory lap over this because I definitely want the music to come from a real place and be inspired, not just because we got honored or anything like that, but because we're honoring music. We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.”
