Green Day may have scrapped their 2013 tour dates due to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong‘s rehab stint, but tonight (October 30) over at MTV, they’ve premiered their second music video since the singer sought help. “The Forgotten” is the band’s contribution to the Breaking Dawn — Part 2 soundtrack, and following in the line of videos from Uno!, this one shows grainy footage of the guys in the studio, though it’s interspersed with clips from the film.
As for the song, it’s a piano-based ballad — you’d be tempted to call it a power ballad considering the band’s raucous past, but no, this is all emotion, no brawn. “The Forgotten” is a tad cloying, but it’s a fitting affair considering the struggles the band is going through right now. The Breaking Dawn — Part 2 soundtrack is out November 13 and also features new music from Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Feist and Christina Perri.
