I don’t even think they have to have a theme, just a string of well written, well produced songs that are a bop would work for me. 

Of course! Good music is what it's all about and it doesn't need any gimmicks.

Scumbag On A Mission

The idea of Green Day working with the producer behind Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy material really concerns me. I’ve never been a fan of either of these bands, but (the way I see it) both Panic! and FOB sacrificed their creative freedom for management/producer-ensured mainstream credibility. They put their creative control in someone else’s hands because they were determined to secure their place on the charts, and they completely altered their image and destroyed their credibility in the process. I don’t want to see Green Day undergo a similar transformation. I just hope Green Day can remain true to themselves and continue to put out great music. I don’t want to see them lose interest in writing/recording music that’s true to their identity, and I don’t want to see them become motivated solely by chart success and mainstream popularity.

I agree with @Green Day In Seattle, but am a little concerned about this guy but think GD know what they want and will do what they want.  PATD  have always been very poppy to me, very mainstream and it seems to me that since FOB’s return, they have been quite a different band and more set on success than they were.

The agonies of the long term fan - so excited waiting for new music, so worried about what it may sound like!

Exactly! And the first time I took part in this pre-release excitement was before the trilogy so I have a bit of trauma hahaha

I don’t have any qualms about them trying to sound like anything other than green day. Like they said with revrad “we’ve been doing this 30 years we know what we want to sound like”. So yeah whoever they were or we’re not to bring in I have no doubt it won’t change anything in that aspect

I don’t know to what extent Butch Walker had an influence on American Beauty/American Psycho (I can see that Jake Sinclair is credited as main producer) but, even if I don’t love the new FOB sound/vibe, that record was just great in terms of production value. And I don’t buy this thing that producers control the sound of a band, maybe it can be true when you are new to the music industry, but talking about a bunch of old ladies as GD are I am sure that any major artistic decision will be solely in their hands (for better or for worse).

They certainly have a huge influence, wouldn’t say they control it entirely per say but they still have a big impact.

Look at the last blink-182 album, clearly Feldman had an impact of the sound of it. Another one off the top of my head is Arctic Monkeys embracing the “desert rock” sound when they worked with Josh Homme :wub:.

ultimately the band write the record, not the producer, however they will have picked the producer based on their previous work. That being said it doesn’t mean they’re going in a pop direction. The newest Foo album was with Greg Kirsten, who produced Adele and Sia, but Dave didn’t start singing about heartbreak or anything :lol:

Producers definitely have influence over records and their sound (otherwise I guess they should change their job :D), but I don’t think they have control over them.  I think a band like GD will choose a producer based on a creative direction taken by the band, they will not limit their artistic choices based on the necessity to have a certain producer. And as you said I think they will make the choice based on the producer career, which can mean many things and not necessarily him/her having produced a more or less pop sound.

Paradoxically I'd be less worried about them working with Kirsten because Adele and Sia don't suck despite being pop :lol: But I have to agree with the point that FOB records aren't bad production-wise, so I'm probably just biased.

I think it's exciting!

FOB and PATD were always more poppy and trendy than Green Day. They had a poppy sound that was heavily influenced by current trends at the time both when they started and when they had comebacks and were only ever borderline rock or punk. So I don't think they're really comparable. But Green Day also have plenty of pop sound in them (in a different way). So I think both that there's no reason it wouldn't be fitting for them to work with that kind of producer, and also that it doesn't mean it would have the same outcome as those bands working with him.

I agree with this. PATD & FOB never sounded like Green Day, & GD would never be stupid enough to try to sound like them. Not that I hate those bands, just that it would be too obviously pathetic.

Yeah Kirsten is the best producer in the world right now so that would be ideal, my point was that it’s not necessarily a bad thing :lol:

Exactly. They’ll probably know what they want before they chose him.

Tre’s kit, or a kit that looks very similar to one of Tre’s custom kits being there is what’s made me think it’s him

Could it be just looks like Tre?

not that it couldn’t be Tre and Walker is producing the next album I dunno just all the assumptions on what the record will sound like to me is little too early until confirmation

If you watch this video of Butch's "Pursuit of Tone", you'll see that the space in the instagram post and this video match. NOT saying they are or ARE NOT working together, but the "studio" viewed is actually Butch's personal one. He talks about it around 30-ish minutes in.

(It's a long doc, but very interesting)

Could be. Again pretty sure it’s a custom finish so if they match it’s quite likely to be Tres
