After making it in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and coming from a year long hiatus, Green Day is expected to come back with a new album anytime soon.
In an interview by Billboard , Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong revealed his plans with the band and their future after taking a hiatus that lasted for at least one year.
“There’s definitely a great spirit going on,” Armstrong said of the band’s upcoming record and revealed that there have been written songs already ready.
“We’ve always been pretty charged up.
Before we found any of this out, I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them.
And then we heard about the Hall of Fame, and we were just blown away.” However, the 43-year-old singer claimed that the band would take it slowly and wouldn’t rush things for the new Green Day album.
“Yeah, I mean, we’re going to take our time,” he said.
“We’re not going to try and pull off some, like, victory lap over this because I definitely want the music to come from a real place and be inspired, not just because we got honored or anything like that, but because we’re honoring music.
We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.” In line with this, being inducted to the Hall of Fame at a very young age truly meant how the music of the pop punk band inspired a lot of people.
“Well, even people that would be our contemporaries, a lot of these guys would be in their fifties already.
But we started young.
This is my high school band, and we just kept going.
So there’s been a lot of life within the time period that we’ve been around.
We’re really fortunate in that way.”
