Just read through the last couple of pages...

@TJChrobo I trust you 100%, I just don't trust Billie on this 😂 I think he might not know exactly when the album/1st single is coming out. Idk I would think earlier if the single comes in Sept. 

But so cool you got to meet and chat with Billie! 😁

I think what makes @TJChrobo believable is that @GDFan2019 doesn't believe him :lol:

But then I saw the pics of him with Billie, Adrienne, and Jeff. But I still think the album would be released a lot sooner than February

See? I knew this would happen! At first I didn’t believe @TJChrobo but then I saw his photos. And now I’m the one that gets criticized for believing it

What makes the most sense to me is that Billie knew the single would be dropping by September at the very latest so said that as a conservative estimate.  Maybe he wasn't even sure yet, which ties in with Matt's hint that the album was done and then was adjusted in some way and was done again.

adjusted:  was poppy.  now METAL AND SCARY.

Whether we get new music or not next week, please don't let it sound poppy like the trilogy :lol:

I don’t see Billie telling one random stranger when the album coming and that they’ll be leaving the label after it but stranger things have happened 🤷‍♂️

So at the latest, we wait til September to here new Green day. That ain't to bad. Hopefully if we do have to wait two more months and have to endure two more months of this nonsense, the song is really good.

He did do exactly the first part for Trill in OC if memory serves.

And like I said earlier he did it last year before The Longshot album.

But the leaving the label part? That’s what I’m questioning that just seems to be a strange random thing

He may have said it apologetically to explain the delay like as to say, “the album won’t be out until February but we’re leaving after that so it won’t be like that again”.  Sounds like he isn’t happy it’s taking so long.

Why would the label suddenly make Green Day wait that long to release the album after the single?

In 2016, Bang Bang was released in August, RevRad was released in October

In 2012, Oh Love was released in July, ¡UNO! was released in September

In 2009, Know Your Enemy was released in April, 21CB was released in May

In 2004, American Idiot (single) was released in August, Album in September

I can go on and on through all the albums, but you get the point

The label has that power. Why they would do it, I have no idea. Could be they're not happy with what the band turned in. But once the finished work is delivered, I believe the rest is in Warner's hands. Maybe White Tim can shed some light on that?

I'd be surprised if they weren't happy with what Green Day made. They're a proven band with a great track record and a solid fan base. Can't picture the label saying, "Eh this isn't good enough."

This and also they may be basing it off of RevRad’s sales. As big an act as they have been they are nowhere near what the major pop acts sell these days. They could have been shunted to the back of the line as a relatively lower performer.  Past performance has little to do with current expectations. The music business has changed even in the last few years.

And this has nothing to do with the five month time span between single and album. That is actually a strategy to maximize sales and streams by releasing four or five singles before the album and building hype as opposed to the old method of album first and then singles people won’t stream because they already heard the album.  The label may be trying to help them by doing it this way because they are not a multimillion selling pop act anymore.

I'd be shocked too, but you never know.

Case in point with current Lumineers album (III). Gloria single released in April. Album comes out in September. Seems to be a new trend

Seems like most artists release multiple singles now before the album comes out which I hate

Wow had to catch up so just to address the info that apparently Billie has shared I'm not surprised about the label part and it's actually something I've speculated about here before. 

I take the single date and album date with a grain of salt not because I don't believe the poster but just because that's so far in advance and things can happen in that time that can change the timeline of the album or single's release. 

I'm ready for the album when it's ready for us to hear it.
