American pop-punk legends Green Day have given an explanation for their recent return to their associative political songwriting after having temporarily abandoned it.

The masterminds of “American Idiot” have revealed Saviours, their fourteenth studio album. The record, according to Green Day, “bridges the gap” between Dookie and American Idiot.

Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool make up the trio. They have now disclosed that the album will return to their political commentary roots.

Frontman Armstrong disclosed that the lead single, “The American Dream Is Killing Me,” was initially composed for their previous album, Father of all Motherfu*kers, when discussing it as a standout moment of this comeback. But it was set aside for a collection that was more politically charged.

We didn’t want to get political with “Father Of All” because it was so clear. We had just terrible politics and terrible division in the United States, so it was such low-hanging fruit”. He said to 102.1 The Edge. However, when we pulled it out this time, it seemed like the ideal moment.

He continued, “We took a temporary hiatus from politics because we didn’t want to become just another CNN pundit pointing fingers.” Still, political music… To do that requires a great deal of heart.

“I believe that if you continue to act out of anger or just for the sake of acting, you take the emotion out of it. After that, it just gets included in the complaints made by everyone. To truly experience a “The American Dream Is Killing Me” moment, one must have those unique, inspirational moments.

The scheduled arrival date of Saviours is January 19.
