Green Day’s Father of All… album arrived Friday, the band’s first LP release in four years. Featuring previously released singles “Father of All…” and “Oh Yeah!”, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said the band wanted to find a “new direction” with the release.
“There’s so much toxic s*** in the ether right now,” Armstrong told Spin. “I didn’t want to write songs that would contribute to that. So, for us, it was like[…]let’s find a new direction we haven’t gone into.'”

The direction? Making Green Day “danceable.”
“Yeah, I think this whole record the point was to make Green Day more danceable,” Armstrong said. “So songs like ‘Meet Me on the Roof’ or ‘Father of All,’ those are the two songs I think of…”
Green Day will support the album on the highly-anticipated Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Get tickets through the tour website.
