If you weren't already pumped up for next summer's triple-headed Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, then Green Day's ballroom blitz through their new single "Father of All..." on Thursday night's (Sept. 12) Jimmy Kimmel Live! should get you all the way there. The veteran punk trio put on their finest tailored suits and shiny boots for a spirited run through the poppy Butch Walker-produced first single from their upcoming album of the same name.
The follow-up to 2016's Revolution Radio has been teased by Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong as "The New! soul, Motown, glam and manic anthemic. Punks, freaks and punishers," and "the life AND death of the party." Judging by the relentless energy of the track and BJA's tumble through the song's frenetic chorus, "I got paranoia, baby/ And it's so hysterical/ Crackin' up under the pressure/ Looking for a miracle/ Huh-uh, come on, honey/ Lyin' in a bed of blood and money," well, yeah, that tracks.
The Hella Mega Tour presented by Harley-Davidson will kick off on June 13 at La Defense Arena in Paris and run through Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria, Scotland, England and Ireland throughout the month. The three bands, supported by The Interrupters, will hit North America beginning on July 17 at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. Produced by Live Nation, the 20-city North American outing will bring the bands to some of the most renowned stadiums including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park and more. All three groups will play massive venues in Houston, Miami, Toronto, New York and more before wrapping Aug. 29 in Philadelphia.
