The next Green Day album would be the follow-up to 2016’s well-received Revolution Radio. The band’s 12th studio album soared to the top of multiple charts on the strength of the singles “Bang Bang,” “Revolution Radio,” and “Still Breathing.”

Armstrong also recently teased the return of Green Day’s side project, the Foxboro Hot Tubs. The caption of an Instagram post hinted at upcoming shows.
