You can see the announcement below:

Weezer

Weezer are an American rock band from Los Angeles. At the moment, three of the founding members are playing in the group. Their albums Weezer and Pinkerton have been important and influential albums in the 90s and 00s alternative rock scene. In total, they have released more than 10 albums, ranging from alternative rock to power pop, pop punk and indie. In 2019, the band released two studio albums with one of them composed entirely of cover songs. You can hear the lead single of their latest release in the video above.

Green Day

Green Day are an American rock band formed in 1986. Their debut studio album 39/Smooth was released in 1990. However, their major label debut happened with the release of their third studio album Dookie in 1994, through Reprise Records. The album is considered to be a milestone in Green Day’s career, selling ten million copies in the U.S alone at the time. Their seventh album American Idiot released in 2004, can be characterized as a career comeback for the band after a period of decreased success. The band has also won five Grammy Awards, while in 2015 they were also inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Green Day are considered today together with Bad Religion, Rancid and The Offspring as one of the best bands of the California punk scene that achieved large-scale success in the early 90s.
