Green Day Returns with “Father of All…”

Green Day: Father of All...Green Day has released Father of All…, which marks the band’s thirteenth studio album. Bassist Mike Dirnt says the album is musically closer to the band’s earlier albums like Insomniac and Dookie with “epic crowd chorus chant moments.” It also marks their shortest album to date with a running time of just 26 minutes and 12 seconds.

“That’s just how the songs were coming out,” Dirnt told Spin. ” They felt dynamic enough without having to embellish anything or really sort of squeeze an arrangement out of anything. The other thing is I’m sure everybody expected us to write some sort of fucking magnum opus about [expletive] Trump, but it’s just not where we are right now. American Idiot still says everything that needs to be said today. So we’re at a place where we wanted to play with our influences.”

You can hear Dirnt’s supportive and melodic bass playing on the title track:

Father of All… is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
