The trio look like they're celebrating the album that spawned Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)...

Green Day have teased that they'll be marking the 25th anniversary of their album Nimrod in some way.

The trio of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool released their fifth studio album back in 1997, and Friday 14th October marks 25 years to the day since it arrived.

In a social media post, the group shared the roman numerals XXV on a yellow and black background, referencing the colour scheme for the record's artwork.

They teased: "Someone’s got a VERY big birthday on Friday… Any guesses who??!”

The LP was the follow-up to 1995's Insomniac and featured classic single Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), while tracks like Hitchin' A Ride and King For A Day are still staples in the band's live shows.

Some fans responded by calling for the band to release a deluxe edition with alternate takes, B-sides and demos, while others had more specific requests.

One follower commented: "Nimord ofc. And now that we are talking about that album, play Worry Rock once for all pls."

Another joked: "Nimrod special anniversary acoustic show in my apartment except I don’t invite anyone else and I pay you with popcorn."

Meanwhile, Armstrong has insisted the chart-toppers haven't ruled out dropping a new record.

Asked about the possibility of a follow-up to 2020's Father of All..., he replied: "It’s possible.

"Whether we do a full-length album or an EP or just a song, we have a lot of different options. It’s a matter of whenever the right moment happens.

"That’s the beauty of the way you can put music out these days. You don’t have to wait for any gatekeeper to tell you that the timing is right.”
