Green Day name new album


Recommended Posts

Green Day have announced the name and rough release date of their new album.

A posting on the band's official website Greenday.com revealed that the album - called '21st Century Breakdown' - will be released this May.

US Fans can pre-order the album now from the Greendaymusic.com.

The album, Green Day's eighth, is split into three 'acts' - 'Heroes And Cons', 'Charlatans And Saints' and 'Horseshoes And Handgrenades'.

Last night (February 8), Green Day presented the award for Album Of The Year at the Grammys.

I think it's a pretty cool move by the band, I'm not quite sure I fully understood that 'coattails of the industry' comment above. They could easily have made another bestseller à la American Idiot with a couple of catchy singles. Whether you like him or not, Billie Joe Armstrong is great at writing that particular sort of simple sing-along pop ("Minority", "Nice Guys Finish Last", "Holiday") that gets stuck in your head.

Teen girls everywhere will swoon.

Wrong band. Green Day has a very diverse audience. You have the punks who have been there from 1039/Kerplunk, the massive Dookie audience, the latecomers from AI. Dare I say Green Day are approaching u2 territory with commercial and critical success. Oh,yeah, one more thing, Green Day rules!

I probably should have done a quote, was referring to the cover.

Looking forward to this myself actually.
