Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer reveal Hella Mega Tour dates, new music
It is on, people: Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy are confirming they’re teaming up for a massive stadium tour (after teasing it) for the summer of 2020. And they've all got new music to hype it up.
Green Day offered up an Anchorman-inspired ad with the aforementioned trio’s faces superimposed over the original movie’s cast.
Weezer embraced their own Green Day-referencing track, “El Scorcho,” from 1996’s Pinkerton for their promo.
In addition to the fire announcements, Green Day are issuing “Father Of All...” the lead track from their thirteenth studio record of the same name. The followup to 2016’s Revolution Radio is slated for release February 7, 2020 via Reprise/Warner with preorders available here.
Fall Out Boy also dropped “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” featuring Wyclef Jean, their second new track this year after Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen collab “I’ve Been Waiting.” The new track will appear on their upcoming Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die - Volume Two out Nov. 15 via Island. FOB previously released Volume One in Nov. 2009. Preorders are available here.
As for Weezer, they’re unleashing “The End of the Game” off the metal-inspired Van Weezer, which is due out in May 2020. The upcoming album will follow two releases this year: Black Album and covers-filled Teal Album. Preorders for Van Weezer are available here.
And that’s not all. All the three bands will be teaming up for a show tonight at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles to celebrate the announcement. The show is all ages, and tickets are available in person at the venue box office beginning at noon PT.
