New Green Day Single Coming Out August 11

It's been a little quiet on the Green Day front lately. Too quiet.

Now comes news that the group, largely dormant since its 2015 Rock and Roll of Fame induction, will be releasing a new single, "Bang Bang," on August 11.

The news came in a tweet from Billie Joe Armstrong, who told fans to "stay tuned for more details" -- mostly likely a new album possibly for this fall.

Green Day did release a Christmas song last year, but the group's last releases -- the Uno, Dos and Tre albums -- came out in 2012.

During the interim, Armstrong teamed with Norah Jones for the Everly Brothers tribute album Foreverly.
