Green Day “Want To F*ck With People” On Their New Album, Father Of All…

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool on their mindset going into album number 13.

While we’ve got a five-month wait until we get to hear the new Green Day record, Father Of All…, in full, the band have promised some surprising – and mischievous – changes from their punk rock sound of the past on album number 13.

In Kerrang!’s new world-exclusive interview with Green Day, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool unpack their new era, and how their mindset coming out of 2016’s Revolution Radio affected the sound of Father Of All…

“Do you want to go back and do the same old thing?” Tré muses. “We don’t want to do what everyone would expect us to do, so it was just kinda mischief and making it fun. That was the bottom line of it.”

“There’s a very fine line threading the needle for us, because we do want to try new things, but we always want to make sure it’s absolute Green Day, you know?” says Billie Joe. “It’s a very fine line – clever and stupid (laughs). But Green Day’s credo is mischief, no matter what. We’re always down for mischief and we want to fuck with people… to the point of it being abusive!” he jokes.

Bring on even more mischief…
