Green Day Tease Release Date New Song With Mysterious Video And Website Launch

As October starts, fans traditionally share jokes about waking up Green Day, a nod to the band’s timeless anthem, Wake Me Up When September Ends. This year, however, the punk rock legends have taken the lead in waking us all up, and they have something exciting up their sleeves.

In a surprising move, Green Day have unveiled a mysterious 33-second teaser video featuring none other than the charismatic frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong. The teaser video begins with Billie Joe turning off an alarm clock, and it’s worth noting that the alarm sound in the clip has the unmistakable vibe of a new Green Day song. As he sits up in bed, our eyes are drawn to a calendar on the wall, adorned with several significant dates in October.

Of course, right at the start of the month, there’s a date that can’t be ignored: October 1st, with the phrase “WAKE ME UP!!” prominently displayed. Towards the end of the month, Halloween makes its spooky appearance. October 21st and 22nd are marked with the intriguing message “WWWY!” meaning Green Day‘s headline performances at the When We Were Young Fest. However, the most tantalizing detail is the date October 24th, encircled in bold red pen, but curiously devoid of any written information.

The caption accompanying the social media video reads, “It’s October 1st, WAKE UP. Now go hit snooze on theamericandreamiskillingme.com.” This cryptic message redirects fans to a brand-new website that showcases the same teaser video. However, there’s a twist; the website offers an option to ‘snooze.’ Intriguingly, clicking on this button allows fans to enter their details and “register for a wake-up call” and set an alarm.

The big question on everyone’s mind is whether this elaborate teaser is a prelude to the release of new music. Green Day gave fans a taste of what’s to come when they performed a previously unheard track called 1981 live back in July. Furthermore, the band had already confirmed their recording efforts, stating at the end of 2022 that they were “working recording our record in London and LA.”

Fans around the world are now eagerly awaiting more details, as the anticipation builds. In the meantime, check out Green Day‘s intriguing teaser video below, and make sure to set your alarms for whatever they have in store on October 24th!

Green Day Announce 30th Anniversary Deluxe ‘Dookie’ Reissue

In a thrilling announcement after teasing it last week, iconic punk-rock band Green Day have revealed plans for a massive 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of their groundbreaking album Dookie. Released in February 1994, Dookie not only became a cornerstone of Green Day‘s legacy but also left an indelible mark on the history of punk-rock as a whole.

Scheduled to drop on September 29th, the reissue promises fans a treasure trove of previously unreleased content that provides a rare glimpse into the making of this iconic album. The collection will include demos, outtakes, and live recordings that transport listeners back to the heart of the mid-90s punk scene.

The highlight of the reissue is the inclusion of two exceptional live recordings: Live At Woodstock (1994) and Live In Barcelona (5 June ’94).

True to their punk ethos, the release will be available in both digital and physical formats. Collectors and vinyl enthusiasts are in for a treat with a limited-edition 6LP vinyl box set, where each record is pressed on a distinct shade of brown vinyl.

But the surprises don’t end there. The reissue will come packed with an array of collector’s items that pay homage to the irreverent spirit of the album. Among these unique offerings are Dookie dog poop bags (a playful nod to the album’s name), an air freshener, postcards, bumper stickers, a magnet sheet, a set of buttons, a paper airplane, a black-and-white “coloring page”, and an alternate cover art poster.

Dookie boasts an impressive lineup of hit singles including Longview, Basket Case, Welcome to Paradise, When I Come Around, and She. With over 15 million copies sold worldwide and Diamond certification in the US with 10 million copies sold, Dookie remains a symbol of Green Day‘s influence on punk and rock music.

Although the official 30th birthday of Dookie might be a few months away (February 1, 2024), Green Day have already ignited the excitement on their social media channels, teasing fans with hints of the impending celebrations.

Check out the announcement below and let us know whether or not you plan to buy the deluxe edition!
