Green Day reveal plans for world tour, 3 new song titles from the upcoming Revolution Radio, a soon-to-be release for a Tim Armstrong-directed music video, and that they are involved in a new documentary about East Bay punk.
Green Day went online live Tuesday afternoon to take over iHeartRadio’s Twitter page, answering some of their fan’s questions at #iheartgreenday. The band were bombarded by hundreds of questions, but they did take some time to reveal a couple of interesting things.
They answered in the affirmative when asked whether there will be a UK tour, as well mentioning it will be part of a Green Day World Tour sometime soon.

Some of the questions they answered had to do with their upcoming release, Revolution Radio. When asked if there are any love songs on the new album, they answered that two of the songs were; “Youngblood” and “Ordinary World”. When pressed about a favorite song, Green Day responded “’Still Breathing’ destroys!”
@TessTheGreatt Revolution Radio is the best of old GD and Later. A fresh take on a concept, songs that are three minute barn burners.
