Green Day is not your savior. But the spirit of rock n roll might be. And as the greatest punk band alive, they’re the loudest vessel we have… to give it a shot. Green Day are ready to flip off the famous, stupid and contagious, by putting a mirror to the present tense like only they can, with Saviors— an inspired new studio album to be released in early 2024. Amazingly, Saviors represents Green Day’s 14th studio album, yet somehow this enduring power trio – Billie Joe Armstrong, Tré Cool & Mike Dirnt – remain devoted to their defiant craft that has fueled their career-long destruction of every boundary bestowed on the genre, and landed 3 East Bay punks in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. The album was recorded in both London and Los Angeles under the audacious ear and Rock prowess of Green Day’s longtime friend & collaborator, GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo.

Just prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Green Day released Father of All… — an album co-produced by Butch Walker that found the punk-pop veterans ratcheting up the glam as they tightened their song structures. It’s difficult to separate the album’s short shelf-life from the culture’s sudden lockdown but in any case, Father didn’t open up a new horizon for Green Day, so they went back to what they know works: heavy, hooky power pop given crunch and weight by Rob Cavallo, the producer who helped beef up their sound 30 years prior on their major-label debut Dookie. Saviors follows the same rough blueprint as its forefather — garagey rockers are countered by exuberant melodies and wistful ballads — but the trio is smart enough to not attempt to mimic either the snottiness or their frenetic rhythms here. Green Day sound exactly like what they are: rock & roll lifers settling into middle age, irritated by some shifts in culture but still finding sustenance in the music they’ve loved for decades. They may rhapsodize about a “Corvette Summer” in a salute to the glory days of pre-MTV AOR but age hasn’t made them crankily conservative or excessively nostalgic. Green Day send certain catchy rock styles from the past through a loud, muscular filter, an execution that tempers their lingering punk influences without seeming lumbering or slow. The ballast makes Saviors seem streamlined and steady, a shift in emphasis that is impossible to ignore on first listen; they seem as if they’re retracting. After that initial impression fades, Saviors sounds cleaner, stronger, and purposeful, all due to the still-sharp pop instincts of Bille Joe Armstrong. Age may dampen Green Day’s roar, but it has also heightened their songcraft, and that’s reason enough to give Saviors time to let its hooks sink in. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
