Green Day frontman Billie Joe talks about their new album and his influencers. Also, Green Day’s new album Father of All… released on February 7th, 2020.

Green Day has a fifteenth and latest studio album ‘Father of All Motherfuckers’, released on February 7. This is the follow-up to band 2016’s ‘Revolution Radio’ album. As for the band’s latest release Father Of All… album has so far had just over 23,000 chart sales with vinyl. Also, they are in Number 1 in the first week at the UK Official Chart.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe mentioned his influencers:

“You never know what you’re gonna get. Either way, if someone can’t play – sometimes you get someone that is just a complete shredder, and the crowd goes absolutely wild, and then you get someone that can barely put their hands on the damn thing, and still people kind of go nuts over it because it’s in the spirit of connecting with everybody. I remember being a kid and seeing Van Halen play. I was, like, 12, and Eddie would come out. And I’d go, ‘God, it would be so cool to be up there and do what he’s doing.’ So I was always keeping that in mind, subconsciously that’s basically what ended up happening, breaking down the barrier between the band and the audience.”

Then Billie Joe talks about the new album:

“I think we were trying to come up with, like, sequencing a record is one of the hardest parts about making a record. So I had 16 songs, and I was putting them in sequence, and I was having a difficult time. So then I was, like, ‘I need to just pick my top 10 favorites that I know that I know are gonna go on’. And I was, like, ‘That’s the record right there, those are the 10 songs.’

“And it’s sort of a departure of what we’ve been doing in the past because we’ve done rock operas, we’ve done concept records, we did three albums with 36 songs on them and stuff like that, so it’s the shortest album I think we’ve made since [1995’s] ‘Insomniac.'”
