    In an interview Billie states that this album wraps up their record label deal and that they are excited to be able to do what they want.

    As for the tour, their back catalog is more than enough to fill seats especially with FOB and Weezer with them. I think there is merit to the theory, whether or not that is what they are doing though, who knows. Guess we’ll find out once the deal is officially done haha

    Yeah I remember reading that interview. You're probably right about their back catalog and pairing up with FOB and Weezer will be enough to sell tickets. I just don't know if it would be wise to essentially punt an album just to get out of a contract when their past couple of albums have been bad, seems risky to me. But like you said we'll find out.

    There’s already Groupon deals for most of the dates on this tour. This tour was built on nostalgia, we’ll see how it works out in the end.

    Maybe there’s a point at which a band has made so much money and has enough fans that will consistently turn up when touring, that it just stops being critically important, from a business perspective, if new albums/material are any good altogether. Perhaps we could call it “the U2 effect.”

    Sounds pretty much like the first song.

    I don't buy it either. It's just bad music.

    Nah. It's good music. It's just different than what you'd normally expect from Green Day.

    I really believe they have an actual album ready to go once they're out of their deal

    Ugh this is awful. I couldn't even make it through the song. Ive loved everything Green Day has put out. Seems like this album will not be for me.

    Pretend it's not Green Day and the songs are a lot better. Honestly. It seems like the biggest reason people aren't liking these songs is because they don't sound like Green Day. This is more or less similar to bands like The Hives, but with more distortion. I'm digging them a lot more now.

    Kinda like when The Ataris album Welcome The Night came out. That album was soooo stylistically different that it immediately turned me off. Even Kris Roe's vocals were different. But once I went back to it and listened to it as not an Ataris album, but as a whole new band, it made me appreciate it and enjoy it a LOT more. Same thing with these new GD singles.

    Am I the only person that hears these new Green Day songs as wanting to channel the Black Keys??

    Yeah when it randomly comes on in shuffle it definitely is a lot of fun

    Definitely better than some of the new blink album. Definitely worse than the latter half of the album
