Green Day Share Brand New Single, ‘Holy Toledo!’
Green Day have shared a new single called Holy Toledo! You can listen to it below.
Arriving today the band’s latest release follows on from this year’s tracks Pollyanna and Here Comes The Shock.
Holy Toledo! begins with a stripped-back verse, with frontman Billie Joe Armstrong expressing his desire to visit “where the trouble begins“. The song then transforms into an energetic, pop-punk-infused number.
“We’re hell raisers/ Death wish cravers/ We’re running with razor blades/ Party favours/ Sex with strangers/ We don’t care what the neighbours say,” sings Armstrong in the chorus.
Announcing the single, Green Day wrote on social media: “Damn right we’re tearing it up tonight.”
Holy Toledo! features on the soundtrack to Mark, Mary & Some Other People, the new rom-com from Hannah Marks. The film arrives in cinemas and on streaming in the US today.
Earlier this week, Green Day shared a 1994 performance of their classic single Basket Case from their forthcoming ‘BBC Sessions’ album. Set to arrive on December 10, the collection comprises all of the band’s Maida Vale sessions from across their career (1994 to 2001).
The earliest session documented on the new record came on June 8, 1994, just months after the band released their iconic breakthrough album Dookie, going on to play a number of its highlights including When I Come Around and Basket Case.
The 1996 session saw them supporting Insomniac, before they returned to Maida Vale again in 1998 (on the ‘Nimrod’ tour) and 2001, for Warning.
Armstrong and company last month released the second part of a limited edition 7″ vinyl, which is available exclusively to subscribers to their coffee company, Oakland Coffee Works.
Green Day recently wrapped up the North American leg of their ‘Hella Mega Tour’ with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Rescheduled UK dates are yet to be confirmed.
