Following a long hiatus before being inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Green Day is rumored to come up with a new album to announce their come back and continue with a tour.
After the induction ceremony, Billboard was able to talk to the band’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who revealed that the band is ready for a follow up release to their 2012 trilogy “Uno,” “Dos” and “Tres.”
“There’s definitely a great spirit going on,” Armstrong said.
“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 release date of the new Green Day album is still a big question mark as the band is still enjoying their much-needed break from touring and promoting their songs.
Armstrong revealed that they are taking the recording process slowly, as they wanted to create a record that would be remembered by their fans.
“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.” The 43-year-old singer then claimed that the break the band took would be temporary and that fans should expect more from them really soon.
“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.”
