The American icon rockers, Green Day, have jump-started the decade with their 13th studio album. Today, it released on all platforms. Entitled Father Of All…, this 10-track, 26-minute album is jam-packed with some of the most invigorating work in the modern era of Green Day. But, if you’re looking for a “feel good” album, this isn’t the one for you, according to Billie Joe Armstrong.

Rock and roll sometimes has become so tame because a lot of rock acts are always trying to look for the feel-good song of the year or something. Everything gets really watered down and wimpy, and I think rock music should make you feel bad.

The album actually contains a variety of emotions in its short runtime. Green Day has taken their sound to all new, never-before-heard places from the Berkeley-based punks. Armstrong even said for himself that this album draws on some unexpected inspirations.

This record is The New! soul, Motown, glam and manic anthemic. Punks, freaks and punishers!

Of course, what is an album without its accompanying tour? Not just any tour, either — we’re talking about the Hella Mega Tour, in which Green Day is taking the stage with fellow Ernie Ballers, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and The Interrupters. You won’t want to miss it, so check out their official website for tickets.
