Rock continues its 2016 comeback.


First Blink-182, then My Chemical Romance, now Green Day. Is it 2004?

Green Day have delighted fans by announcing their first single in three years – Bang Bang – will be released on August 11.

Lead singer Billie Joe shared the good news on his Instagram today:

The rockers formed their band in 1986, then rose to fame in the early 90s with hits like Minority and Time Of Your Life, before solidifying themselves as legends of the genre in 2004 with their massively successful American Idiot album, spawning the hit singles American Idiot, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Holiday and Wake Me Up When September Ends.

Their last official single was X-Kid, released way back in February 2013.
