Green Day issue lyric video for Still Breathing

Green Day are premiering a lyric video for “Still Breathing,” a track from their forthcoming album, “Revolution Radio.”

"That was a very heavy song," Billie Joe Armstrong tells Rolling Stone. “Sometimes I run away from being too heavy. But sometimes it just comes out that way."

The chorus, "I'm still breathing on my own" alludes to the fact that "at some point, we're all going to have to be on life support," he adds. "As time goes on, your thoughts get darker."

Due October 7, the band’s 12th album was recorded at Armstrong’s new studio in Oakland, CA.

“Still Breathing” is the third tune issued ahead of the project’s release, following the lead single, “Bang Bang”, and the title track.

Green Day will launch a rare North American club tour at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH on September 26 after postponing the first three dates due to an illness “affecting several members of the band and its crew.”

Originally scheduled to open in St. Louis, MO on September 20, the group also postponed stops in Chicago, IL (Sep. 21) and Detroit, MI (Sep 24), while a Toronto, ON appearance at the World Cup Of Hockey Fan Village on September 23 was canceled.
