Green Day premiered a number of new songs during their recent Halloween concert at New York City's Webster Hall, dedicating about half of their set to previewing new music.
"We're playing a lot of new songs," Billie Joe Armstrong acknowledged during Green Day's intimate New York City show. "People hang onto that s**t like it's a sacred cow. I say f**k it - cows are meant to be eaten."
The band took to the stage clad in costumes, Armstrong as Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas, Tre Cool in a pink fairy dress and blonde wig, and Mike Dirnt sporting all black and zombie make-up. They ripped off new song after song including "Wow, That's Loud," "Make Out Party," "Let Yourself Go," "Carpe Diem" and "Oh Love."
The concert, dubbed "Halloween Party and Concert," was being documented for a film about the band's creative process on the new album.
