Green Day Share New Single, ‘Pollyanna’; Announce New ‘Hella Mega’ US Tour Dates
Green Day have released a new single titled Pollyanna, which you can check out below.
The uplifting song comes after the pop-punk veterans shared a snippet of it from the studio over the weekend and features the lyrics: “We’re gonna take back the night/ Everything’s gonna be alright“.
“Better days are looking up the road, and to celebrate we just dropped a brand new song,” the band said of the new track on social media. “Go listen to Pollyanna out everywhere now. Can’t wait for Hella Mega Tour!”
Pollyana follows Here Comes The Shock, a new single that arrived in February of this year and marked the band’s first new material since 2020’s Father Of All Motherfuckers album and Billie Joe Armstrong’s recent solo covers record No Fun Mondays.
Elsewhere in Green Day news, the band’s ‘Hella Mega Tour’, their U.S. headlining stadium run with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, kicks off with new 2021 dates beginning on 24 July in Dallas, Texas. Produced by Live Nation, the 21-city North American outing will bring the bands to some of the most renowned stadiums, including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park, and more, before wrapping September 6 in Seattle, Washington. The Interrupters will appear as special guests on the tour.
Additionally, two new shows have been announced for the tour — 17 August in Columbus, Ohio at Historic Crew Stadium and September 1 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at Summerfest. Pre-sales for those shows begin Thursday, May 20 at 10 a.m. local time with general on sale for all tickets beginning Friday, May 21 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for all shows, including the rescheduled dates, along with more information is available now at the official Hella Mega tour website.
