    I have very reliable sources that have confirmed that it will be released sometime after June 2018. I feel terribly about sharing this highly confidential inside information against my sources' wishes, but I'm only here to advance the best interests of GDC. Hopefully this helps clarify everything.

    Hi fangirls! here's a pic of the Brooklyn gig on 1st June I went to. The pic isn't of me of course, but you can see my left arm with the red swatch, that's how close I was to Billie during one hour and a half... My friend and I, both coming from France with my dad, arrived between 6 and 7 am at Baby's All Right. Within 15 minutes we found someone with an extra ticket who sold it 30$ to my friend (I was the only one to have bought a ticket online before going). We were so happy! We sympathized with the fans already there... We had brought a French flag like we did exactly a year ago, on 11 June 2017 at Download festival, which Billie put on him and gave us back. This time we wrote our names on the flag (and let a few other fans there to write their names, but we put ours in evidence so it was clear we were the French fellows). We weren't the only ones to have come from Europe, we met people from Germany, England, Greece. 2 hours or so before the show, we saw the band dropping from a van and quickly getting inside the venue in front of us. I was totally amazed to see Billie from so close for the first time, even for one second. When we came in, we were 2nd row. At the end of Taxi Driver which was 3rd song I think, he saw the flag, took it, screamed "vive la France!" and tended it back. Then they dove right into Happiness which is my fave. I felt so joyful after that, and kept jumping and waving the flag all the time. In this video of As Tears Go By that I found on Youtube, you see me waving the flag right in front of Billie, it's so embarrassing! I'm even afraid to have disturbed him (the fans behind me for sure!) But, oh well, I had so much fun! The people in the first row kept bumping against the stage (at their legs's level) and it seems more harsh for them than for me. I was all right most of the time. My friend was exactly in front of Billie in 2nd row and I was just on her left. I could literally see Billie from top to bottom, bottom to top. The man is very petite, hot, and beautiful. In response to the shirt removal discussion above, I'm not in his head but I would be in heaven if I could see his chest and bellie, certainly would not prefer anyone else's, so maybe he's afraid of being eaten by the audience, or that we would be blinded or faint for too much beauty. I could see how gorgeous he was from that close, I didn't take any pictures (I didn't even have my cell phone with me) but the shape of his body is not leaving my mind. It was the most special thing to see him from so close. And listen to him singing right in front of me. And admire all his gestures. His smiles. His wide sparkling eyes. Oh, and his upper row of teeth. I was often fixed on his teeth, I had a prefect view of them. I almost regret not have taking a picture of that. But I think I was really able to enjoy it 100x more without a cell phone. The Billie and Kevin kiss during Love is For Losers kiss got me, as I expected it. It was so dear. Kevin is an adorable guy. He gave his own bottle remainder to my friend when we were nearly passing out from heat (I can't imagine what it must've been for the audience at the following Philly show!) and at the end of the gig the gave her his own Losers club pic after she put our flag in Billie's hand, while he was shaking hands in the front rows before leaving: I got to have his hand quickly, but I was admiring my friend who managed to grab and hold his hand several seconds, the flag in between; she explained to me afterwards that he stopped a few seconds because he wasn't sure if she wanted to give him the flag, than he just walked away with it without looking back, and saying "have a great night everyone!". I have this scene engraved in my head. But I immediately had a bad feeling that phrase would mean last scene... Last scene indeed, he didn't stay to meet fans afterwards. That was a huge disappointment to me. But my friend and I already made such a huge step towards him with that show, (the first time seeing him live was in Paris February, last year we didn't know each other yet) I finally accepted that it will be fine to let a meeting with him for the next time. Anyways, my friend and I joked about she and Kevin having a little thing between them. When I was waiting with other fans in front of the door after the show, a woman working at the venue saw me and made me come in the band's just-left quarters, to prove me they were gone. I cried and was allowed to take a can of coke that was supposed to be for Billie (I don't even know if that's true, but I was so devastated I chose not to question it in the moment. I don't even like coke. Last thing, I got to stroke Billie's temple and hair when he stage-dived for the second time, on my side. I was a bit afraid of not being respectful by doing that... but I did it as softly as I could and his skin and hair were as soft as can be. Gosh.

    Holy fuck! That was like the greatest night of my life!! I was able to get pretty close and I got tons of pictures and video! It was so amazing to be in his presence in such a small, intimate venue! God, I love him! There was one point in the show where he opened a bottle of water and chugged like a quarter of it, but then handed the bottle to the crowd. So... technically, I got to drink out of the same water bottle as Billie! He like shoved the whole water bottle top in his mouth too, so even though it was passed around quite a bit, he definitely made his mark on it. Here are a few pics from the show on my Instagram. I will be uploading all of them onto my Flickr soon too and the videos to YouTube. That might be a little longer, though. UPDATE: I've uploaded all my photos on Flickr now. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lexiswildlifephotography/albums/72157697495464054 Thank you all for your wishes and support! It meant a lot and I got to experience something truly amazing! Love you all! Be sure to look at the last picture! I love that one because his smile is so sweet and genuine.

    But is the Longshot really so much different than Green Day in terms of their musical style? It's style punkrock/pop-punk, isn't it? I like the Longshot, but I don't think that their album is more innovative than Revolution Radio, for example. And to be honest, I care for Green Day as a band. I know that Billie Joe is the creative force behind their music, but I also like Mike's bass lines and Tré's energetic drumming. They' re not just Billie Joe plus x.

    A few weeks ago I mentioned I did an interview with a member of Prima Donna/The Longshot. Now the interview is live! Check out my interview with Kevin Preston! http://genreisdead.com/genre-is-dead-interview-with-prima-donnas-kevin-preston/ And let me just say, he was more than happy to gush over Billie! I was nervous asking him about it because we were there to mainly talk about Prima Donna's new LP, but he loved it! That made me so happy that he liked talking about Billie Otherwise, he was a great dude! We had such a nice conversation.

    I love these two pics of our wonderful happy little dork. Those big beautiful eyes in the first one... so enticing. And that adorable smile (and gorgeous eye wrinkles) in the second one - he is absolutely glowing. I love seeing my boy this happy. Wow... he's just the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. He's so perfect, I could cry. I love him so much.

    The Dementor's Kiss. Is Billie secretly a dementor? Oh my god oh my god oh my god! I totally got a ticket to the Seattle show tonight! I'm so fucking excited! I did not sleep well at all because tickets were all sold out and I was just a huge ball of anxiety about how to get one. squashie09 posted a link to the ticket sales and suggested I check again for tickets (after giving me other advice for if there weren't) because there might be more and there were, so they have my deepest gratitude! I am kind of anxious about the show, though. I have only ever been in a mosh pit one time before and it was not very crowded. I'd really like to get as close as I can, but don't really know how to do that. Doors open at 7, so what time should I get there to get close? Any tips? I'm so inexperienced with this. I will totally take pics of Billie if I can and post them here! I can't wait to see him again! I've missed him so much! I love our beautiful boy!

    If it does come out in the fall, hopefully it's in September. RevRad was in October which was after the Grammy cut off. It was basically forgotten about a year later when it was eligible.

    Yeah, also American Idiot took at ton of time to produce. It's true that a good album doesn't always hinge on time, sometimes quite the opposite is true, but I do think there is a certain correlation, something that is especially true the older the musician and/or band in question is. I'm just going to be honest and say: I don't have a clue. Personally, a release late 2019 seems the earliest date possible to me, but even then it's pushing it. That is of course, depending on which kind of album they even intend to produce. A significant part of my expectation is a more elaborate album than RevRad, produced in the studio together with a producer. That would certainly take some time. But that's just my baseless subjective hope and wish, not what they are actually objectively going to do. At this point, they may already know / have an idea (such as Tre's new drum set might indicate) what kind of album they want to produce, but they may as well haven't put any significant thought to it. I mean, they just had a reasonably well performing album with a generally good response, both from critics and from fans. And they played to more than 1.2 Million people over the span of just over a year. The release of the album isn't even 2 years ago. All we knew at this point 2 years ago is that they were in the studio. And the end of the full scale world tour (well, except for Japan/Oceania) is barely more than half a year ago. Maybe this album/tour cycle gave them the motivation to jump right into the next album. Maybe it exhausted them and they sought to step on the brakes a bit. I know that Billie went head first right into the next project, but going on tour with the Longshot most likely isn't even half as stressful as it is with Green Day, because both the live shows and the album itself don't have to meet the same expectations and public scrutiny. That's an important thing to consider. I'm sure they've learnt on several occasions in the past that public opinion really gets to you, even if it's just a loud minority. People fiercely attacked the last Linkin Park album and as tragic as it is, you bet Chester Bennington was more than aware of it. So again, we just don't know what they're thinking and/or doing right now (apart from Billie). But that's the whole fun of it, I guess. I too admit to getting excited by every little ''announcement'', hint etc. that may or may not point to a new GD album, but in the end: All I know is that I don't know nothing... ...and that's fine ...yee-ha!

    I can't wait to see new footages of Billie tonight from the Longshot concert. I hope he enjoyed his week off. Talking about week off, aka vacations, aka Billie surfing... I know this is old, but I would so go to the beach watching Billie surfing all day long.

    You should listen to the rest. Title track (as title tracks often are) is one of the most mediocre songs. I was one of the people who complained about the vocal effects when we first heard a couple of songs but over the whole album you don't notice it, the overall sound is good and fits the style of the songs. And Devil's Kind is the best and the EPs are great too, the album's quite short so I listen to them all together. On the album and EPs there's awesome covers, some 60s type songs from the Beatles style musical Billie wrote for, and loads of fun original songs with classic rock vibes. Haven't been to a show myself but from all the footage and what everyone's said they look amazing, as intimate and energetic as FBHT. I highly recommend The Longshot.

    I love his face in this pic. Little goof. Also, the last pic in this post where it looks like he's headbutting Kevin with his floof. Not a sensitive issue, it's just that I'm not really the kind of person who could line up for long (for various reasons), and also my mam would want to come with me because she's a casual GD fan, but she's disabled and can't stand for very long, so we'd have to be in the seats anyway.

    I get that it would be kind of interesting just to see what their houses look like etc so I can see why you asked. But yeah if that info was posted on here/spread around it could really cause a lot of problems for them, it's important to respect their privacy. Even if it was widely known info (which I don't think it is) we don't like to take part in spreading private stuff about the band on GDC.

    I love this pic of my beautiful boy so much. The way he has his beautiful hand on his gorgeous thigh. And that calf muscle. And that wonderful curve of his cute ass. I also love the way he keeps pushing his hair back from his beautiful face in this clip. He's so freakin' hot. I'm just so happy to see him again, I've really missed him this past week. I don't know how I'll cope when the tour is over, I hope he doesn't go totally silent.

    The Longshot also isn't anything new. It's music steeped in that vintage, garage rock sound that we've heard before. This doesn't mean it's bad, but it is very familiar.

    For the past month, my Instagram page has been viciously targeted by a vast network of Green Day fanpages. At first, they appeared to be real people behind these accounts. But as of the last week, the new accounts have been very similar, all in name, profile picture, and content. Many of these pages even have the exact same bio description. I do not understand what purpose these accounts serve. Who is behind them? Is this some kind of marketing stunt pulled by Green Day's new management? Some kind of Russian spy conspiracy? I have blocked every one of these accounts, yet every day there are new ones that come after me. Here are just a few of these accounts that I have stacked together in a list Is anyone else having this problem as well? Is there anything we can do to stop it?

    I can relate to these so much! Unfortunately, the Longshot show for Bellingham, WA was canceled. So I will probably never get to see them. I did get to see American Idiot on Broadway, though, back in 2011 when Billie was playing St. Jimmy! I had purchased a ticket ahead of time, but my cousin, who I was staying with in NY, entered a ticket lottery at the doors and we won two front row tickets from that. Her friend who came with us took one of the tickets and I took the other and gave my original ticket to my cousin. This was the first (and I so hope not the last!) time I've seen Billie so close! I remember noticing every little detail of him and being amazed at how incredible he is in real life right in front of me. When he took off his shirt during the "Death of St. Jimmy" scene, I couldn't help but stare. At the end of the play when all of the cast members were taking their bows and stuff, Billie stepped up directly in front of where I was sitting! I was completely in awe and basically paralyzed. He was literally only like a foot and a half away from me and I could have easily touched him. I didn't because 1) I was frozen, and 2) I thought that might be weird/rude. After all of the cast left the stage, I raced outside to see if I could meet him since they all come out afterwards. I'd gotten there too late and there were too many people that I couldn't get anywhere near him. I saw him signing playbills and shaking hands and hugging people and stuff in the mirror ceiling of the box office cover and then saw him walk to get in a car. I was absolutely devastated that I actually cried. Since I'm the type of person who tends to focus on the negatives of a situation, I still regret not meeting him then. I also feel like I never will or will never even get another chance and that makes me so depressed. I just need to think about this and look back on it with happiness and gratitude for the amazing experience I had rather than regretting the things that didn't happen or fearing that things won't happen in the future. It's hard to do for me, but I'm working on it.

    @Kuromignonne I'm so happy for you and your friend. You seem to have a very good time there. And I feel your pain to have not been able to meet Billie after the concert. We're on the same boat. I missed him by like one minute. Atleast you got a better night then I did. Tu peux tout aller lire ça dans le Elsewhere. Je ne veux pas mettre mon histoire ici parce que j'ai fini la soirée en faisant quelque chose de mal, rien de majeur, mais je n'ai pas envie d'être jugée par l'ensemble du forum. I want to see the Longshot again. And I want the people who didn't get their chance yet to see the band too. Seeing Billie so close is so wonderful. Like you get to see every details we have discussed here for real. Billie becomes reality in front of your eyes for an hour and a half. He isn't the guy you look at through a computer screen anymore. It's something special to experience. If there's a second tour for the Longhshot, I would love to join some of you guys for one concert.

    I don't want The Longshot to be over, I want them to do more shows before the next GD album, but in Europe now! I prefer GD for the music, but those Longshot shows are really fun. I wouldn't say I had way more fun at that Longshot show I've just come back from than at GD shows I went to last years in arenas, it was different, and nothing moves me more than GD (aside from the music, Kevin is adorable but I can't compare him to Mike, just as David isn't Tre, nothing tops GD as a trio, even though The Longshot as a band are amazing too) but it was certainly most incredible to admire and listen to Billie from so close. Nothing comparable with the arenas when most of the time I couldn't see him. It was for Billie himself, not GD, I went across the world and it was awesome because Billie is fantastic, GD or not GD. But if anything I want so hard to make a US trip for GD. Even at the next GD tour if I know they'll be coming in Europe, I'll go to the US see them in a club before if I have the financial means to. Funnily I don't have a strong post-gig depression (or I don't feel it completely yet), perhaps because it felt so incredible to be there. I was so happy to see Billie in those conditions, from last August I wanted so badly to go to the US see him again with GD, I couldn't and it was tough. Now I did it with The Longshot, quite earlier than what I expected after RevRad ended. It feels reassuring and fills me with great joy, I believe I will be able to see him again when I'm missing him too much, even at the other end of the word. In conclusion, The Longshot has allowed me to see Billie in amazing conditions, but GD > everything including The Longshot.

    Today when coming back to work after my trip to the US to see The Longshot, my beloved boss asked me about it and he wanted to know if I had touched Billie, etc. (I will make my review around here in no time!) and I talked excitedly about it and showed him photos and a video of As Tears Go By. he said "that song is very famous" (he had already said that before about 21 Guns and then pretended not to believe it was from Green Day) so I said it was a Rolling Stones covers, but that I prefer Billie's voice (I had listened to some Rolling Stones performances of it, I honestly love Billie's singing 100x times more). My boss responded by a cynical "yeah, right" while I'm sure he didn't even compare both versions, he just don't want to figure Billie as the great musician he is, and it's practically only based on Billie's appearance ; although my boss is not the best example because I think he likes to piss me off with that and it even amuses me too when he does it, but sadly he's far from being the only one to react like that towards Billie. I think Billie is the most awesome singer and frontman ever and when I say that it makes people laugh. Why couldn't he be, eh? The primary punk and bratty side of Green Day are generally all what people can tell from them, as if it was not compatible with being a great rock band. Most people ignore the brilliant evolution of the band and of their music, and that Billie has become a hell of a singer and songwriter. He still has all of his punkness but added with his nowadays singing and writing skills, it's totally brilliant. And it keeps becoming more brilliant, I'm sad when people seem to think Green Day has already done their time a long time ago, while I'm witnessing that it's completely untrue. And for some reason it seems these people won't change their mind. Another thing, I don't know if it's more or less annoying for me, is when people say Billie has a great voice... the music is awesome... but they don't care about Billie as a person or even as a frontman, they don't feel connected to him. I believe I could say that for most great rock bands, the music is great but I don't dig a lot the singer/writer, but it hurts me when it's said about Billie. Seeing him performing is the best and the most moving thing to me, and it hurts me to see other people not caring about him. I also hate when people (internet people or reviewers for what I've seen) mock Billie expressing his social and political views as if "a millionaire guy wearing eyeliner can't be taking seriously". While I love even more Billie for doing it the way he does, putting his entire heart into it. About the accent, I just want to say, my dad who heard him singing in Brooklyn said he definitely has a strong Californian accent. I'm not an expert but as @Hermionesaid Billie pronounces some syllables in a way that can randomly remind of British, and I can see those, but it's certainly very far from an actual British person singing; I personally can't stand a strong British accent while I love every variation of Billie's singing accents, so... People using that accent argument as to discredit Billie are like saying there's only one type of distinguished accent while singing, that would be British, so Billie would be trying to "imitate" that while in his case it is a form of local American accent, and he makes it distinguished by his own way of using it while singing. Nothing similar to any British band or performer I've heard.
