Share This:

Global rock superstars Green Day Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool – have returned with a fiery call to action on The American Dream Is Killing Me, the first single and opening track from the group’s 14th studio album Saviors, releasing 19 January 2024 via Reprise/Warner Records.

The band debuted The American Dream Is Killing Me and Look Ma, No Brains! off the new album live last weekend during their triumphant and electrifying Las Vegas, NV, takeover, consisting of a sold-out surprise show at the 800 capacity Fremont and back-to-back headlining performances at When We Were Young Festival. ​ Listen to The American Dream is Killing Me and watch the accompanying music video, directed by Brendan Walter and Ryan Baxley below. There will also be several exclusive vinyl versions of Saviors available including neon pink with neon green splatter, and black ice with hot pink splatter, with most in very limited supply and pressed only once.

The American Dream Is Killing Me was one of the last tracks written and recorded by Green Day for Saviors. “As soon we cut it, we said, `Okay, that’s going first,’” says Billie Joe Armstrong who describes the new song as “a look at the way the traditional American Dream doesn’t work for a lot of people — in fact, it’s hurting a lot of people.”
