Green Day: Father Of All scores US top 5 debut

Green Day have scored a US Top 5 debut with their new album, “Father Of All.”

According to Billboard, the project enters the Billboard 200 at No. 4 with opening week sales of 48,000 copies to deliver the California band their 11th US Top 10 set.

Produced by Butch Walker, Chris Dugan and the band, “Father Of All” marks the follow-up to Green Day’s 2016 album, “Revolution Radio”, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

“Yeah, we did some different stuff,” Billie Joe Armstrong told iHeartRadio recently about the new record. “We're lifelong fans of the history of rock n' roll. Anything from Motown music to old Little Richard to Glam Rock and Hard Rock in the '70s, Van Halen in the '80s, and K-Pop of the current world right now. So, we're all about it."

Following the No. 1 UK debut of “Father Of All”, Green Day will perform in Singapore early next month as part of a series of Far East dates, including three shows in Japan; the group will join Weezer and Fall Out Boy for the start of a European tour in June.
