Pop punk legends are masters of marketing building the suspense around new music.
There is no doubt Green Day are working on new music with their latest social media teaser, another clue in the mystery of ‘1972’. But what do the pop-punk icons have in store for fans? A new single? An album? Who knows. For now, we just need to enjoy the game and follow the clues.
The latest crumb on the ‘1972’ trail has Billie Joe Armstrong sitting playing a mysterious riff on his acoustic, contemplative look on his face. Meanwhile, in the split frame below, random shots of the band goofing about, travelling around and yep, cute squirrels.
The mysterious build-up follows a busy year for the band. Singles Here Comes The Shock, Polyanna and a version of Kiss smash, Rock ‘n’ Roll All Night (Live from Hella Mega), all keeping fans appetite satiated. They released Holy Toledo on the soundtrack for Rom-Com ‘Mark, Mary and Some Other People’ and thrilled fans with the new album BBC Sessions.
Regardless of what the band have coming up, fans are starving for new music and will eat it up.

Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
