As you may or may not know, Green Day are releasing a documentary, entitled Heart Like A Hand Grenade, that provides a behind-the-scenes look at their time writing and recording their beloved 2004 release, American Idiot. Until now, specifics have been scarce outside of a trailer that was released late last month, but the band has since announced the release details for the feature.

"We can't believe this was shot over a decade ago. Little did we know that this was only the beginning of the adventure this record would go on to be," said Billie Joe Armstrong. "We are stoked for our fans to see this footage for the first time and watch us try and figure it all out."

Heart Like A Hand Grenade made its premiere at the Mill Valley Film Festival in San Rafael, California yesterday, October 8. For a list of upcoming showings and ticket information you can visit the film's official website.
