Great News for Green Day Fans – They Are Coming Out with THREE New Albums
After two punk opera concept albums, California trio Green Day are following up with not one, not two, but three new albums. They are about to surpass the number of albums Tool has released in the past 15 years in one four-month period. From the press release:
“Green Day is currently in the studio recording three albums – a trilogy entitled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré! – that will be released by Reprise Records on Tuesday, September 25th 2012; Tuesday, November 13th 2012 and Tuesday, January 15th 2013 respectively. The albums are the follow-up to the Grammy®Award-winning 21st Century Breakdown, and are being produced by the band’s long-time producer Rob Cavallo. ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré! are being recorded in their hometown of Oakland, CA.
“We are at the most prolific and creative time in our lives. This is the best music we’ve ever written, and the songs just keep coming,” said the members of Green Day. “Instead of making one album, we are making a three album trilogy. Every song has the power and energy that represents Green Day on all emotional levels. We just can’t help ourselves… We are going epic as fuck!”
I think more press releases need to talk about going “epic as fuck“. I also think the English language needs to adopt the upside exclamation mark, because it’s epic as ¡fuck!
