LISTEN TO GREEN DAY'S JUST RELEASED NEW SONG
Green Day is taking their agressive ambitiousness as a band up a few notches with the ballsy move to release not one, not two, but three consecutive albums within a four month period, aptly named ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tres! The first album drops on September 25th, the second on November 13th and the third on January 15th.

Each of the three albums has a totally different groove and vibe. Armstrong described the album's differences in a Rolling Stone article. "The first one is power pop," says Billie Joe Armstrong. "The second is more garage-y, Nuggets-type rock. And the third is supposed to be epic. With the first album you're getting in the mood to party. On the second one, you're at the party. And the third album you're cleaning up the mess."
The discs are produced by Rob Cavallo, who co-produced the band's 1994 breakthrough disc, Dookie. "We wanted to get back to the simplicity of Dookie," he says. "We also wanted to go pre-Dookie, back to our love of Fifties and Sixties music, close-to-the-bone rock & roll. You don't hear a gazillion parts. The majority of this is drums, bass, two guitars and vocals."
Bassist Mike Dirnt says the group wanted to move away from the weighty, politically charged content of their previous two albums, 2004's American Idiot and 2009's 21st Century Breakdown. "We were just thinking about making a killer power-pop record – dirtier, back to basics," he says. "We tapped into our version of Exile on Main Street."
