The band responsible for the smash hit albums Dookie and American Idiot will be on the road in North America later this month, starting Sept. 20 in St. Louis. There are 12 dates scheduled on the continent in a month, with things wrapping up at the UC Theatre in Berkeley, Calif., Oct. in London. The group also has sets booked at  and  in Germany next June.

Last year the band played a secret show at  in Berkeley, the venue where Green Day originally rose to prominence in the East Bay punk scene, and the group has also been known to play other secret gigs, so super-fans will want to keep their ears to the streets.

By many markers, Green Day has become one of the most prominent punk rock bands ever. Some, most notably John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon of the Sex Pistols, have publicly questioned whether the group can be called punk rock, as it has achieved widespread commercial success. For a long time the band was banned from 924 Gilman for signing a major-label record deal, but last year’s show, which was also attended and supported by former members of esteemed punk-revival acts Operation Ivy and , made it clear that there is no punk-police, and Green Day retains the respect of many of its peers.

The new album was produced and recorded in Oakland, Calif., and promises more of Green Day’s political and philosophical musings on modern life in its power chord-driven style. The album is available Oct. 7, and preordering the album now gets you a download of “Bang Bang,” the newest single.
