After a four-year drought, Green Day are back.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong took to Instagram to reveal that Green Day’s new single will drop next week. He said ”Dear friends! green day is putting out a new single called ‘BANG BANG’ August 11. stay tuned for more details,”

It was written accompanied by a black-and-white photo of the group looking cool and disaffected.

Weirdly, though, it was hashtagged ”#mynewband” but we have no idea what that means.

It will be the first official release by the band since 2012’s Uno,Dos!,Tre! alum trilogy.


The band hasn’t rested though, with the group inducted just last year into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, which comes just 25 years after the release of their first album 39/smooth.
