No need to traverse a boulevard a broken dreams, a new Green Day album has finally arrived. Nearly four years since their last studio LP — 2020’s Father of All… — the iconic rockers are back with a brand new set featuring a slew of singles including the Rock Airplay chart-topper “The American Dream Is Killing Me.”

Saviors marks a return to the thematic bent of “American Idiot,” which bassist Mike Dirnt addressed in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’ was written by Billie [Joe Armstrong] almost four years ago. But we all knew it was just low-hanging fruit. We’re not a parody of who we are, and songs like that need time to be fleshed out. If that means just sitting back and letting life happen, so be it. And it was one of the last things we recorded.”


In addition, “The American Dream Is Killing Me,” the band also released single such as “Dilemma,” “Bobby Sox,” “One Eyed Bastard” and “Look Ma, No Brains!” Every track on Saviors was written and composed by Dirnt, Armstrong and Tré Cool. To promote the new record, Green Day played an impromptu show in the Rockefeller Center subway station on Tuesday (Jan. 16) for an upcoming late night segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Starting July 29 at Nationals Park, Washington, D.C., Green Day will kickoff the North America leg of their worldwide stadium tour in support of Saviors. The jaunt will celebrate both the 30th anniversary of Dookie and the 20th anniversary of American Idiot, and feature support acts such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid and The Linda Lindas.

Green Day has scored nine entries on the Billboard Hot 100, including the top 10 hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” (No. 2) and “Wake Me Up When September Ends” (No. 6). Over on the Billboard 200, the band has logged 11 top 10 entries, including the chart-toppers American Idiot (2004, three weeks), 21st Century Breakdown (2009, one week) and Revolution Radio (2016, one week).

Sony Renames Music Building After John Williams as Hollywood Legends Turn Out to Pay Tribute

On Thursday afternoon, the history-filled Sony lot in Culver City — which was the MGM lot during Hollywood’s Golden Age, home to “more stars than there are in heaven” — welcomed film composer John Williams, after whom the studio’s musical building was being renamed. Williams, 91, who is best known for the scores of Star Wars and 29 Steven Spielberg films — 20 of which were scored in the structure that will henceforth be known as the John Williams Music Building — was on hand, as were many of his collaborators […]
