Green Day is back with a new album and a new song, “The American Dream Is Killing Me,” that is a fiery call to action against inequality. The band has always been known for their outspoken lyrics, and this song is no exception.
In the song, Billie Joe Armstrong sings about how the traditional American Dream is no longer attainable for many people. He sings about how the system is rigged in favor of the wealthy and powerful, and how it is leaving everyone else behind.
Alongside the track, Green Day has unveiled a film noir inspired black-and-white music video featuring the band in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. The killer video was directed by Brendan Walter and Ryan Baxley and shot in Los Angeles.
Green Day‘s new album, “Saviors,” is set to be released on January 19, 2024. The album is a collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, who has worked with the band on some of their most iconic albums, including “Dookie” and “American Idiot.”
Green Day will perform this Thursday, October 26 as part of Amazon Music Live‘s concert series, and on November 19, the band is heading up north to headline the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime Show for the 110th Grey Cup at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, Ontario.

The band debuted “The American Dream Is Killing Me” and “Look Ma, No Brains!” off the new album live last weekend during their triumphant and electrifying Las Vegas, Nevada takeover, consisting of a sold-out surprise show at the 800-capacity Fremont and back-to-back headlining performances at When We Were Young festival.
