Green Day Break Into The New Year

With Fiery New Track

“One Eyed Bastard”




Global rock superstars Green Day – Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool – are ringing in the new year with fiery new track, “One Eyed Bastard.” The electrifying track is the band’s final offering ahead of their 14th studio album Saviors – coming January 19, 2024.


“One Eyed Bastard started off as just a riff that I had — a shuffle, almost like a Black Sabbath kind of riff. Lyrically, I was just reflecting on bad times in life,” shared Billie Joe Armstrong. “That’s the thing about nostalgia, sometimes you think, “That was an awful time.” Everybody’s got that ugly place in their life where they have to deal with ugly thoughts — it could be like revenge or whatever. Thankfully, I have an outlet in songwriting.”

“One Eyed Bastard” comes on the heels of Green Day’s show-stopping Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve performance, where they performed 2 fan favorites off Dookie and 2 off American Idiot, along with “Dilemma” off their forthcoming album Saviors. Saviors will also feature “Look Ma, No Brains!” and “The American Dream Is Killing Me” – which hit #1 on Billboard Rock & Alternative Airplay.

As an added surprise, Green Day have announced free listening parties for Saviors, happening in 200+ indie stores worldwide starting on January 13th. Fans will have the opportunity to listen to Saviors ahead of its January 19th release. All events are free and will have exclusive giveaways while supplies last.

Recorded in London and Los Angeles, Saviors is the latest powerful collaboration between Green Day and Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, whose notable previous work with Green Day includes two of the band’s most iconic albums, 1994’s Dookie and 2004’s American Idiot. The record comes just ahead of Dookie’s 30th anniversary – celebrations have already begun with the release of a massive deluxe edition of the album and a surprise show in Las Vegas, where the band performed Dookie from front to back to a sold-out crowd of superfans.

Later this year, Green Day will embark on a larger-than-life global stadium tour with support from the illustrious rock luminaries The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, and The Linda Lindas in North America and Nothing But Thieves, The Hives, Donots, The Interrupters and Maid of Ace in the UK/EU. The Saviors Tour, fueled by Monster Energy, kicks off in Europe this May before making its way to North America in July for an intoxicating summer run through the states.
