It’s kind of hard to believe that Berkeley’s Green Day have been around over thirty years. The trio has sold more albums than you can begin to think of and had multitudes of success since they got their start. Now with a new album Father of All… due in February of next year, they’ve just announced a mega-tour and released their lead single by the same name.
The song is snappy and upbeat, but steers far from the pop punk leanings the band is known for. Closer to a more pop streamlined tone that’s closest to Queens of the Stone Age, the sound isn’t bad, just different and not what you may be expecting. Green Day definitely changes things up with falsetto vocals while adding hand claps and snaps. The song feels like an upbeat sixties tone with a modern twist, making one wonder what the album will sound like.
“Father of All…” can be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased in all digital music stores while Father of All… can be pre-ordered directly from Warner Records in multiple bundles and on multiple formats ahead of its February 07, 2020 release date. Green Day will be on tour beginning March 08, 2020 in Singapore, Singapore at Singapore Indoor Stadium until August 29, 2020 in Philadelphia, PA at Citizens Bank Park. The band’s full run of dates can be located here, while tickets go on sale for all dates on September 16.
