The announcement of a surprise show in Paris comes following Armstrong and co. sharing news of a new album ‘Saviors’.
First announced last week (October 26), the new LP is set to arrive on January 19, 2024, via Reprise/Warner and will be the band’s 14th studio album, following 2020’s ‘Father Of All Motherfuckers’. You can pre-order it here.
To celebrate the announcement, the band also dropped the lead single from the project, ‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’, alongside a new music video of the trio tackling a zombie apocalypse.
The new track was first teased the week prior when Green Day gave the then-unreleased song its live debut in an intimate Las Vegas show. Held at the 1,000-capacity Fremont Country Club venue, the gig served as a warm-up for their headline sets at When We Were Young festival.
At the following festival dates, the band also played a live performance of another soon-to-be released song from the upcoming album, titled ‘Look Ma, No Brains’.
This year has marked the 30th anniversary of the band’s 1994 classic ‘Dookie’ – for which they shared a massive deluxe edition of the album – and also saw the members announce details of a US headline tour.
