'We tapped into our own version of 'Exile on Main Street'' says Green Day. 'We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles'. The band also admits to being less political and more, well, "lusty". See video, below. CHECK OUT THE TOUR DETAILS BELOW THE VIDEO.
¡Uno!,¡Dos! and ¡Tre!
The first album sports Billie Joe Armstrong on the cover. The second features Mike Dirnt, and finally it's iTre" with drummer Tre Cool. Now we know why it's not iTres!.
Green Day have always been an extremely ambitious band, but this fall they're taking it to the next level by releasing three consecutive studio albums: ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! The first disc drops on September 25th, the second on November 13th and the third on January 15th. Here is the exclusive premiere of "Oh Love," the lead single from ¡Uno! (The lyric video works even better if you happen to have 3D glasses handy.)
Each of the three albums has a totally different vibe. "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. (In the fine style of The Rolling Stones, we guess?)
