Background

Work on Revolution Radio began in 2014 after a break following the band's 99 Revolutions Tour,[11] following the release of ¡Uno! ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! in 2012.

After stating that their previous trilogy of albums had "absolutely no direction to them" and attempted to be "prolific for the sake of it," lead singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong claims that their new record is "not so much a makeover as a make under."[12] The lead single, "Bang Bang," described by Armstrong is about "the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media."[11] Armstrong also stated that the whole album is meant to reflect the current state of violence in the United States.

Critical response

Revolution Radio has received positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 72 out of 100, which indicates "generally favorable reviews" based on 26 reviews.[10]

Aaron Burgess at Alternative Press observed "It's the first time in years Green Day haven't had all the answers. But as a statement on how it really feels to fight, it's the closest to the truth they've ever gotten."[14] Gwilym Mumford of The Guardian stated "[after their last few albums] the band have decided to get back to basics: Revolution Radio is their most focused work in years. Lead single Bang Bang sets the tone, with a caustic consideration of the fame-hungry psychosis of a mass shooter."[15]

Commercial performance

Revolution Radio debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 with 95,000 album-equivalent units, of which 90,000 were album sales.[22] The album also debuted at number one in the UK,[23] Ireland,[24] Italy,[25] and New Zealand.[26] The album had first-week sales of 30,880 in the UK, 29,470 of which were from album sales.[27] The album charted at number 10 in the US in its second week with 21,000 units.[28] The album sold 118,000 copies in the first three weeks.[5]
