Green Day’s ‘Nimrod’ gets 20th anniversary vinyl reissue

The album will be available in two configurations

Green Day’s seminal 1997 album, Nimrod, will receive a 20th anniversary limited edition vinyl reissue on October 13th on Reprise Records. The reissue will be available in two configurations, with both including double 140-gram bright yellow vinyl that are individually numbered with an etching on the fourth side.

Originally released on October 14, 1997 through Reprise Records, Nimrod was recorded in Los Angeles, CA and produced by Rob Cavallo. The critically acclaimed album debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart and has since sold over two million copies and has been certified Double Platinum by the RIAA. The album yielded the acoustic hit “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),” which became a massive hit around the world and soundtracked the finales of several high profile television series, most notably Seinfeld. Upon its release, the Los Angeles Times hailed: “Though Green Day clings resolutely to some powerful punk tenets–a clean-burning musical attack fueled by protracted teen angst and guided by a “loser” outlook–the musicians’ knack for whipping up incandescent pop songs transcends punk and makes them winners…”

Green Day is currently on the second U.S. leg of their Revolution Radio world tour. The group joins Stevie Wonder, The Killers and The Lumineers and featuring The Chainsmokers as headliners of the 2017 Global Citizen Festival, the annual free-ticketed event on the Great Lawn in Central Park, New York City on Saturday, September 23rd. Special guest performances will be given by Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, Andra Day and Alessia Cara, with more to be announced over the coming weeks.
