The monumental release of Green Day‘s 12th studio album, Revolution Radio took diehard fans for a ride, but the band isn’t done just yet. With a huge tour announced for North America, Green Day also released an emotional video for Revolution Radio and a popular fan favorite track, “Still Breathing”.
“Still Breathing” is heavily influenced by Billie Joe Armstrong’s own struggles from the frontman’s 2012/2013 stint in rehab for alcohol abuse and the isolation and lost feeling is heavily mirrored with the music video, setting an emotional tone right off the bat. The video also showcases other people within the shots, sharing this overwhelming feeling of being lost, which is a very beautiful and creative way to develop the music video along with the emotional tones of the song.
The climax of the video shows fellow Green Day members, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, playing alone in a warehouse…just patiently waiting for their frontman to return.
(Not going to lie, I shed a few tears…Green Day fans it’s a tough one.)
