The new single is written from the perspective of a mass shooter.
So what can we expect from the rest of the album? The controversial rock group is known for making music that speaks to social and political issues. Their upcoming album is apparently no different. The title "Revolution Radio" was inspired by Billy Joe's experience of a protest over the killing of Michael Brown and the failure of the justice system to indict the police officer responsible.
Angered by this injustice, they wrote the album as a reflection of the state of America in 2016 from a social and political standpoint. Billy revealed that this year's election is an important theme on the album: "I can only go from my own personal life, but this is the most chaos I've ever seen in an election. It's just so freaky. I don't want to add more of the outrage or anger. I'd just try to reflect it. This is the first time that this election has preyed on fear and anger."
