Green Day will follow up 2009's "21st Century Breakdown" in a HUGE way recording three albums to be released in three installments on September 25th, 2012 November 13th, 2012 and January 15th, 2013. They'll be called "iUNO!, iDOS! AND iTRE!"
The album is being produced by long-time friend of the band, Rob Cavallo who also worked on their earlier records.
Mike Dirnt, Billie Joe Armstrong and Tre Cool spoke on their newest project and why they chose to outdo themselves with a trilogy this time. “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. 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!"
Green Day are hitting the road this summer on some festival tours around Japan and Europe.
