Attention, this is not a drill! Billie Joe Armstrong has confirmed that he is writing new music for Green Day and we are freaking out.

Can you believe that the band’s last record, Revolution Radio, was released over two years ago in October of 2016? Hopefully this means a new record is coming very soon!

“I’m writing new songs for gd now,” the frontman shared.

In other news, Green Day put a message on Mars with NASA’s help!

There’s an old relationship book called Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. But maybe the men of Green Day really are from Mars. Because the veteran pop-punk band’s name just landed on the red planet via NASA‘s InSight Lander.

That’s right, a custom inscription from the band was etched onto a chip tucked away inside the Mars lander that touched down on the planet’s Elysium Planitia plain.

“Green Day Since 1986,” reads the interplanetary engraving, signifying the time the Bay Area trio first began performing. (Back then, three years before the band’s debut 1,000 Hours EP, the budding outfit were known as Sweet Children.)
