Watch: Green Day takes viewers on the road in new ‘Youngblood’ music video

Green Day is getting a leg up on the competition and giving their fans an early holiday present. On Friday (Dec. 14), the California-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Youngblood.” The two-and-a-half-minute clip gives the viewer an inside look at what happens behind the scenes when the trio are out on the road.

The music video features footage of the guys meeting fans outside of venues, hanging out backstage with their crew members and family, rehearsing their set, and of course footage of their massive shows during their Revolution Radio tour. It’s also really cool to see how a band that has been together for such a long time still act like a bunch of teenagers before, after, and during a show.

Check out the music video for “Youngblood” above.

“Youngblood” is featured on Green Day’s 2016 release, Revolution Radio.

According to the band, the song was originally intended to be featured on the group’s “lost album,” Cigarettes and Valentines.

“There’s one song that was written a long time ago that’s on the new record [Revolution Radio] called “Youngblood’” and that got a facelift and new lyrics and stuff like that,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told NME in 2016.

While it has been several years since the iconic punks released new music, it looks like things may be changing soon. During an Instagram live stream, Armstrong revealed that he was currently in the process of writing new Green Day music.

“I’m writing new songs for gd now,” the frontman revealed on the live stream.

Even if new music may not see the light of day in 2019, fans have become suspicious that the act may have something up their sleeves. Following several posts on social media showing the band rehearsing Dookie and Insomniac in full, fans have begun speculating that they may embark on an anniversary tour in 2019.

Only time will tell.

Listen: 5 Seconds of Summer give ‘Youngblood’ acoustic treatment

Now that the release of their third studio album is only a handful of days away, the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer are putting their press appearances into overdrive. On Tuesday (June 12), the Australian band headed over to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to perform two songs; an acoustic version of their album’s title track and current single “Youngblood” and a cover of Alice Merton’s breakout single “No Roots.”
