Green Day, one of the biggest punk bands in the world right now, have announced some very exciting plans. The band will be releasing three new albums between September and January. The trilogy of albums dubbed ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré! will come out on September 25, 2012, November 13, 2012 and January 15, 2013, respectively. The albums will be three rock operas that are tied together with common themes and stories.
Speaking on the announcement, the band said the following:
“We are at the most prolific and creative time in out 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 f**k!”
Green Day has really been on a role lately with their latest studio album 21st Century Breakdown reaching number one in fourteen countries back in 2009. They also had their play American Idiot: The Musical open on Broadway in 2010 with plans to adapt it into a movie.
The album trilogy that they’re planning sounds awesome and being a huge fan of the band, I can’t wait! They seem pretty confident about it judging by the comment above and I have no doubt that Green Day will deliver something truly special.
