But this is a very different thing then turning down a website or social media, they kept the profiles open and visible for the fan base, posted pictures simultaneously in three different profiles, and then did the same with the band account after a few hours, which necessarily require to turn the band page into a personal profile. After less then 24 hours everything is back normal, and essentially nothing happened. The only plausible explanation is some sort of test IMHO. 

Or the second thing I said, which is that it was just a weird way to draw attention.

And what sort of test would that be? If you say it’s the only plausible explanation, you need to be more specific.

The “only plausible explanation” is a bit of a stretch, my bad. What I meant is that maybe they wanted to test the user reaction after the profiles went private, check how many people send a follow request, or something like that. Still a bit weird, but to me it makes less sense that it was just a mistake (repeated for four accounts) or a random way to get attention.

If it was to get attention it didn’t work that well because the posts don’t have a high number of likes. So they may have decided to abandon that idea and come up with something else. Personally I think the problem is that the first pic is of a bull, which means nothing to people and didn’t spark interest.

It’s possible, to me it would be particularly weird because making the profile private does not really have an impact on your existing followers, which are those supposed to like the picture in 24 hours. I just hope they are not in the hands of someone making blind attempts like this and that there’s an actual strategy behind it:D

Didn’t spark interest? I’d argue the opposite. A bull head from the wall of Butch Walker’s studio being the main photo of Billie, Mike, Trè, and Green Day’s posts did draw attention. Look at the 30+ pages that were generated here and a couple articles on the web. Not bad for a set of obscure Instagram posts on a Friday afternoon in 2019 by mid-40s dudes in a punk rock band.

We’re a small group in the scheme of things. If their only goal is to get our attention, which I’m sure it isn’t, this album will not do well. The couple articles on the web don’t cut it either. I’m not being negative as I’m sure they’ve got a lot of things up their sleeves. Just saying that hopefully those things will do more to draw the attention of more than just hard core GD fans. 

BUT it’s very possible that these posts were only geared toward hard core fans because it’s strictly to let people know about their appearance tonight and the Golden Bull is small. As I said they may not be about new music....yet

And maybe that’s the explanation as to why they went private just for this announcement. I keep editing this post because one thought leads to the next and then it kind of makes sense 😂

I get your point :D But then why turn public again after a bunch of hours, letting everyone see the post anyway, and why they posted it in the GD page, bothering to do the whole private thing there as well? Ah, I’m probably just reading far too much into this 😂

Honestly I’m a little worried should they make any kind of announcement of an appearance tonight. I was at the Golden Bull last night and the place is seriously small.  It looked much bigger in the videos of the Longshot shows but really the stage and performance area behind the bar is barely bigger than 1234Go! Records.  

Already Prima Donna and Dead Sound are enough to fill the place. With rumors of a surprise Green Day show the place is going to be uncomfortably full from the bar back to the door.  With any kind of actual announcement whatsoever I don’t want to imagine the chaos. I hope they don’t drop any more hints and either they play or they don’t.

I know what you mean but it’ll only be full to capacity so there’s no need to panic too much :)

With the new photos from Butch’s studio yesterday, I’m surprised they didn’t use the hashtag #SongsForAssholes

Maybe because that is just the name of the Instagram profile, all the 4chan leaks are fake, and the album is actually called a Waldo story about hate? #Waldotheory

What is this about Waldo? I am totally going to make a track list and not post it, I feel like I'm about to get a warning about those posts....

Just a stupid joke, definitely not worth a tracklist :D

What was the joke? There is so much chaos on here I am out of the loop.

If Green Day were to make a Where's Waldo album, I'd be good with that.  The artwork would be part of it, and somewhere on the album buried deep in the mix, one of the guys would utter "waldo". 

Yeah, that would be fun.

Just a half hour away from the CoverUps show. Who here thinks Billie will invite Mike and Tré on stage to play a new GD song?!?!? The timing of the IG posts and this show seems just right!

No If anything happens it'll be at the golden bull, and even that is unlikely
