Global rock superstars Green Day – Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool – aren’t holding back on their latest single, Dilemma.

This high-octane track will be featured on the band’s 14th studio album ‘Saviors’– out 19 January 19 2024 – along with their previously released singles The American Dream Is Killing Me and Look Ma, No Brains! Pre-order HERE.

The accompanying black-and-white music video finds Billie Joe Armstrong passed out on the ground as he slurs out the brutally honest lyrics, “I was sober now I’m drunk again / I’m in trouble and in love again / I don’t want to be a dead man walking / I don’t want to be a dead man walking.” The visual follows the band through a classic night of performing hard and partying even harder. As the track winds down, memories start to gain some color as Billie gets hit with the cold hard sober truth: Drunk Billie made a mess of everything.

“Dilemma was one of those songs that was kind of easy to write because it was so personal to me,” Billie Joe Armstrong explains. “We’ve seen so many of our peers struggle with addiction and mental illness. This song is all about the pain that comes from those experiences.”

Earlier this year, Green Day kicked off Rocktober with the release of their first single from ‘Saviors’ – The American Dream Is Killing Me – following a massive Las Vegas takeover during When We Were Young Festival weekend.

Green Day have never shied away from vulnerable subject matter in their lyrics, and ‘Saviors’ is no different. Recorded in London and Los Angeles, ‘Saviors’ is the latest powerful collaboration between Green Day and Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, whose notable previous work with Green Day includes two of the band’s most iconic albums, 1994’s ‘Dookie’ and 2004’s ‘American Idiot’. The record comes just ahead of ‘Dookie’s 30th anniversary – celebrations have already begun with the release of a massive deluxe edition of the album and a surprise show in Las Vegas, where the band performed ‘Dookie’ from front to back to a sold-out crowd of superfans.
