Green Day had a huge undertaking with their recently released trilogy of albums, ¡UNO!, ¡DOS!, and ¡TRE! (click on each album for our individual review). Not only did they have to produce a quality record at their age (because let’s be honest, bands like this do generally get worse with age), they had to produce three of them. Green Day wanted to take a more relaxed approach to writing this record, and didn’t want to create huge concepts like their last two albums, but instead they just increased the scope by giving themselves the task of keeping the …

Realistically speaking, following my first listen to ¡Tré!, the third installment of the latest Green Day trilogy, I should have rejoiced with a sizable party of family and friends. Having embraced and approved of all 12 of the tracks on the album, I honestly should be god damned overjoyed. I probably should have celebrated the return of the Green Day of old with a Macy’s Day Parade (see what I did there?). Yet, in the long run, I have stumbled away from this album with more questions for Green Day than answers …
A clip of the documentary has surfaced showing Billy Jo Armstrong surfing as well as the band playing live.
“I think sometimes taking time off feels dangerous to me because I just like playing music, it’s just what I like to do. I’m addicted to it. And what I’ve noticed what happens to bands that ‘take time off’ — they’re not as good when they come back,” Armstrong mentions in the clip below. …
Well, at least we know Green Day can count better than U2. After ¡Uno, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre! (not to be confused with tres), the band has now announced plans for a documentary on the making of the trilogy of records, and titled it ¡Quatro!. Bassist Mike Dirnt said “¡Quatro! brings our fans one step closer by giving them even more access and revealing what it was like for us to make these records.”
Parts of the documentary will be shown on VH1 on November 28. The conclusion to the album trilogy, ¡Tre!, will be released …

In a perfect world there would be no pillars to fall from. Expectations would be modest and reasonable, directed to the task at hand. Take for example Green Day, who has spent the last 18 years living in the shadow of their best-selling album Dookie. The trio honestly shouldn’t be held to unrealistic expectations of recreating this iconic album. I mean, life happens right? Over the course of two decades people undoubtedly grow up, and their influences and inspirations shift. So logically, Billie Joe and company should in no way be …

Pop Punk connoisseurs are getting their fill this Fall thanks to Green Day’s three-album series, and today we’re given another brand new song. Taken from ¡Dos!, “Stop When The Red Lights Flash” has been making its way through the blogosphere as a live cut for a little over a week, but this morning an official studio version was finally added to YouTube. You can stream the single after the jump.
I still think ¡Uno! was a letdown, but “Stop When The Red Lights Flash” has me tapping my toes. Do you think this could be the first track from …

Green Day released ¡Uno! and we actually liked it. Now, they’ve streamed the first single off the second album in their trilogy, ¡Dos!. The song, called “Stray Heart,” is pretty catchy, and happy and carefree, too – a nice contrast to “Oh, Love”.
¡Dos! comes out on November 13. Listen to “Stray Heart” for yourself and tell us your thoughts in the comments after the jump.
According to PureVolume.com, the band has teamed up with Rovio‘s wildly addicting game, Angry Birds, to release song previews. With the upcoming release of ¡Dos!, the band is sticking to their guns and releasing a preview of their new song, “Lazy Bones”, for players who unlock level 15.
However, for those who aren’t avid Angry Bird enthusiasts, a short preview of the song is also available here.
Watch the tantrum after the jump. In the comments, tell us what you think: is this an overreaction on par with Kanye West’s Bonnaroo disaster, or is this just punk rock at its finest?
The band’s effort ¡Uno! is currently set to be released September 25 via Reprise Records, followed by ¡Dos! on November 13 and ¡Tré! January 15, 2013.
