Nik Rivers heard the track this past weekend at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL and compared it to “ early, punky Green Day.” You can read all of his brief review below.

“So if you are a fan of the early, punky Green Day, you will LOVE the new song Bang, Bang. And when I say early, think Dookie, but not “When I come Around” Dookie, but more “Welcome To Paradise”, “Burnout” & “Chump” Dookie…With hints of Kerplunk & the rawness of 39 Smooth. I'm excited for the #AltFamily to hear this one!”

In other news, Green Day tour rumors have been sparking. Here’s a post from Billie Joe’s Instagram of them looking to be in a rehearsal. Perhaps they have a fall tour planned? One can only hope!
