Green Day – Releasing 3 New Albums 2012/2013 and 2 New Documentaries

Sounds a bit like something U2  would do in a bid to stay relevant but the 25 years of GREEN DAY has seen the band go from almost forgettable punk rock outfit to one of the biggest rock acts out of the United States – and they just keep on churning out the goods.. Big thanks there to AMERICAN IDIOT back in 2004 which got turned into a Broadway Musical and a feature film of that is on the way too (here’s to hoping Tom Cruise is not cast in it).

Well the boys have been quiet for a while now but news to hand is that they are releasing 3 new albums between September 2012  and January 2013 called iUno! iDos! & iTre!

Add to that the boys are getting two documentaries made about them: one about the making of the 3 new albums and another about the band pre DOOKIE days. Plan is that the making of new one will be ready for SUNDANCE 2013. Frontman Billy Ray had this to say about pre-DOOKIE doco:

“It’s not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going ‘we started out blah blah blah’. We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock’n’roll and playing rock n roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist (history).”

My tyhanks to Joe Cunningham for the heads up.
