Green Day release new album & video, played Fallon ++ crazy lines outside Rough Trade NYC

UPDATE: The Rough Trade show happened and included tons of ’90s deep cuts (and then the Webster Hall show did too).

Green Day are back today with their 12th album, Revolution Radio, which isn’t half bad as far as modern-day Green Day albums go. Its best song is “Bang Bang,” which brings on quite a bit of nostalgia for their prime early/mid ’90s era, and the band just played that one on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. They also just put out a lyric video for “Youngblood.” Watch those two videos, and stream the entire album right here:

Green Day have two very intimate NYC shows on their current tour happening this weekend. The first is the smallest, and it’s TONIGHT (10/7) at Rough Trade NYC. To get a ticket, you have to buy a copy of the album at the Rough Trade NYC store today. It opens at 11 AM, but (not surprisingly) people have been camped out all night and there was, apparently an at-capacity line outside the store since at least 8 AM. A few pics below.

Their next NYC show is at the larger (but still very small for Green Day’s standards) Webster Hall on Saturday (10/8). That one is long sold out. Updated dates are listed below.

In other Green Day news, the American Idiot Broadway Musical that no one wanted has now been green-lighted by HBO for a movie adaptation. Billie Joe Armstrong will be reprising his role as St. Jimmy for it. He told NME, “We’ve got a green light from HBO, and the script is currently going through a couple of rewrites here and there, so I’m not sure when exactly we’re going to start shooting, but it’s definitely all systems go at the moment.”
