Green Day post cryptic new video
Pop punk trio reveal more studio footage
Green Day have posted a new video from inside their recording studio, as they continue working on the follow-up to '21st Century Breakdown'.
It is the latest, in a series of videos, to be posted on the band's YouTube and is their most cryptic yet.
The video, shot in black and white, opens with the band standing in the studio with the sound of a scuzzy bass guitar playing in the background. A voice can then be heard saying: "We gonna do a new thing?"
While you can clearly hear drummer Tré Cool say, "I'm really digging our sound right now" towards the end of the 32 second video, other voices are garbled among feedback and drum rolls – leaving questions over how the new album will sound open to interpretation.
The band have previously said that their new ninth studio album will move away from the concepts of their last two records 'American Idiot' and '21st Century Breakdown', and be more straightforward.
Earlier this month, the band confirmed their first live dates of 2012 with headline shows at Japan's Summer Sonic festival and France's Rock En Seine in August.
Although there are currently no UK dates, Green Day's American Idiot musical will tour later this year.
