Starting later this month, Green Day will pair its mostly concept-free new album with a tour of intimate venues throughout North America. The band announced the release of its 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, back in August. It might not be a rock opera, but Revolution Radio’s still poised to be pretty political, if the first single “Bang Bang” is anything to go on. Frontman Billy Joe Armstrong told Rolling Stone the song was inspired by mass shootings in this country, while the album was sparked by protests in Ferguson in the wake of Michael Brown’s death. The album is set to drop October 7, and the supporting tour kicks off September 20 in St. Louis, Missouri. The album is already available for preorder, and “Idiot Nation” constituents can purchase tickets on September 7, two days before the general sale.
