Green Day to release new music next week

Green Day may have new music as soon as next week.

Kerrang! Breakfast radio host Sophie K made the announcement on the show and simply shared the date and time of “July 19th, 5pm”.

The music will mark the first from the punk rock band since 2016’s Revolution Radio.

Although frontman Billie Joe Armstrong recently made an appearance on Morrissey’s cover of The Fifth Dimension’s ‘Wedding Bell Blues’.

Billie subtly announced he’s penning new tracks for his band in a response to a fan’s comment on Instagram in December.

He wrote: “I’m writing new songs for gd now.”

The ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ hitmaker took a break from the band to work on his side project The Longshot, who released their debut studio album ‘Love is for Losers’ last April.

The 47-year-old rocker has a long history of forming side projects, he’s also a member of Pinhead Gunpowder, Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network.

In 2017, the band brought to an end their 21-year relationship with long-time manager Pat Magnarella.

The ‘Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)’ rockers first started working with him in 1996 after the release of their now-iconic album ‘Dookie’, and he was at the helm to oversee the band’s career as they went from strength to strength with hit singles like ‘American Idiot’, ‘Holiday’, ‘Warning’ and ‘Revolution Radio’.

The trio – completed by Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool – are now signed with Jonathan Daniel at Crush Music, who looks after huge artists such as Lorde, Fall Out Boy and Sia.

Mangarella also worked with Green Day as a producer on many of their side projects, including the official cast album for the ‘American Idiot’ musical.

The management boss – who has worked with the likes of Goo Goo Dolls, All-American Rejects and AFI – also ran Billie’s own independent record label Adeline Records.

Daniel established Crush in 2003 and in the last 14 years the roster has expanded to include the likes of Courtney Love, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Panic! at the Disco and many more.
