In January, Green Day will launch a European arena tour in support of the album. The Interrupters will support all dates in Europe. Please see below for all upcoming dates. Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day’s fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence.
