Green Day issue seasonal song

Green Day have released a seasonal song called Xmas Time Of The Year.

It’s a brand-new track, rather than their own take on an established work, with lyrics that explore what the Christmas period means to Billie Joe Armstrong and co.

The band, who were the subject of 2015 movie Heart Like A Hand Grenade, will bring their American Idiot musical to the UK next year.

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.
