Green Day are back with news of their next album, Saviors. The follow-up to 2020’s Father of All… is due to arrive on January 19 via Reprise/Warner. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new song ‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’, alongside a video featuring the band in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. It was directed by Brendan Walter and Ryan Baxley and shot in Los Angeles. Check it out below, and scroll down for Saviors‘ details.
‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’ was one of the last songs Green Day wrote and recorded for Saviors, according to a press release. “As soon we cut it, we said, ‘Okay, that’s going first,” Billie Joe Armstrong said in a statement, describing the song as “a look at the way the traditional American Dream doesn’t work for a lot of people – in fact, it’s hurting a lot of people.”
Green Day recorded Saviors with producer Rob Cavallo, who produced 1994’s Dookie and 2004’s American Idiot.
