British band Catfish and the Bottlemen will be joining Green Day through the entire summer tour.
While Green Day have been out of the mainstream media for a few years now, they did make waves at the American Music Awards this past November during their performance of "Bang Bang". Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong changed some of the song's lyrics to "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA," repeatedly chanting the phrases.
It remains to be seen if the band will make any political statements in the upcoming tour, but Armstrong has never been afraid to speak his mind.
