GDA's RevRad Era Recap Zine

Recommended Posts

Too Dumb to Die(s)

Awesome!

Is it really over though?  It all started on August 11th, 2016 with the release of BANG BANG and ended nine months and five days later with the release of Revolution Radio.  Actually a really short promotion period for the band.  The shortest EVER actually.  They usually spend a little over a year on each album, with the only exceptions until now being Insomniac and Breakdown, which both got about 10 months and a week.  

5 singles is a bit much, but Green Day usually give us more than we deserve.  But three?  This hasn't happened since Warning!  (I'm excluding the trilogy in all aspects of this post due to weird circumstances and the bands express wishes, haha!)  

It's been a fantastic era and I really want it to keep going for a while longer.  Two more singles with videos, the last one showing up around March and it would be a PERFECT one.   Any Rev Rad song and then Ordinary World!  

Still Breathing is probably the highlight for me, while the entire album is amazing.  That song is just perfect in every way.

I met my current girlfriend due Green Day. We are close to 6 years together. We traveled to Argentina to see Green Day, then come back to Chile to catch them again. It was a wonderful night on Buenos Aires. Friends, music, love, all thanks to this band! Todavía estamos vivos :)

Is this something you print copies of, or publish online. Where do we get to see it?

Also, I can't wait to send in some art!!!

They played some different locales and played a lot of gigs even if it was a shorter amount of time. I did think they were gonna do another European leg. At their age, I’m fine with them getting back in the studio.

RevRad was special but it’s time.

We are a little behind.  There is some content I am still waiting on, as well as I was stuck with a big job when I had been planning to work on the layout.  

It was supposed to come out Mid/ Late Jan.  We are now looking at mid Feb

Is it strange that I have literally ZERO recollection of writing this?

I swear this is still coming and is almost done.  I am not giving a date because I can't control other people.

Oops I just found out about this now. I'm now more of a Longshot fan but still like those Gr33n d4y guys and their last tour was quite good.

If our work was featured in the zine, we should've been contacted, right?

Well, I may have forgot to submit something this year, but at least I was able to contribute as an editor.

The content — both submitted by fans and written by our staff — is really good... can't wait to see the finished product in print! :)

I got a draft copy signed by Billie and also left a copy with him after The Longshot show in Montreal.

I am not even going to bother giving a timeline anymore.  The zine is done and I a,m pretty proud of how it turned out.  Would love to see it FINALLY get released.

All those who had writing selected were emailed.  I still need to email about #stillbreathing and fan photos.  Waiting for the team to figure out details for the release before emailing at this point.

Spoiler

your #stillbreathing was included.
