Green Day release movie trailer

Green Day have released a trailer for their movie Heart Like A Hand Grenade, which tells the story behind 2004 concept album American Idiot.

The “lost” documentary is set to be screened across North America on October 15, with a DVD launch expected afterwards.

Director John Rocker says: “After the recording was finished they booked a small theatre and performed the album in its entirety, which is in the film.

“Fun fact – this was 11 years ago and the camera phone wasn’t invented, so this is the only way you can see the concert.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
