“We’ve never been more excited to unleash new music than with Saviors, a record that’s meant to be rocked live, together," say the band. "So let’s thrash.  We’ve got some amazing friends who are coming along for the ride!”

Speaking about new album Saviors, the follow-up to 2020's Father Of All Motherfuckers, the band state:

"Saviors is an invitation into Green Day’s brain, their collective spirit as a band, and an understanding of friendship, culture and legacy of the last 30 plus years," said the band in a statement regarding the new album. "It's raw and emotional. Funny and disturbing. It’s a laugh at the pain, weep in the happiness kind of record. Honesty and vulnerability. What is Saviors about, you ask? Power pop, punk, rock, indie triumph. disease, war, inequality, influencers, yoga retreats, alt right, dating apps, masks, MENTAL HEALTH, climate change, oligarchs, social media division, free weed, fentanyl, fragility,,.. What would Andy Warhol do? What would John Waters do? What would Quentin Tarantino do? What would GREEN DAY do?"

The band recently headlined this year's When We Were Young Festival
