Green Day announce trilogy plans12/04/2012 - 16:31:01
Green Day are releasing a trilogy of albums.
The 'American Idiot' punk group claim to have had the most prolific period of creativity in their career, and are lining up the albums, titled 'Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tré!' for release on September 25, November 13 and next January 15 respectively.
A statement from the band read: "This is the best music we've ever written, and the songs just keep coming. 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."
The band - Bille Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool - have been recording in their hometown of Oakland, California with producer Rob Cavallo, who worked with them on 2004's 'American Idiot'.
Speaking of the new songs, Rob said: "It takes balls to do this, each hit of every instrument is actually super important, they add up to one thing. When you get it done, it's like 'Wow, that's a big powerful statement'."
Green Day will play three shows in Germany over the summer as well as headlining festivals in Japan, France and Italy.
