Green Day have unveiled the artwork for '¡Dos!', the second part of their '¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!' album trilogy.

The new cover is similar to the recently unveiled cover for '¡Uno!' but instead of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, features bassist Mike Dirnt's face with his eyes crossed out, against a yellow background. The artwork debuted via a YouTube clip. You can watch the video by scrolling down and clicking.

'¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!' will be released in three stages, with the first album '¡Uno!' coming out on September 24. The second LP '¡Dos!' comes out on November 12 and finally, '¡Tré!' will be released on January 14 2013. All the albums are available to pre-order now from the band's official website Greenday.com.

The band yesterday cancelled a free 'secret' show where they were set to debut new material. The gig, which was set for tomorrow (June 22) in the Burbank area of Los Angeles, was pulled due to safety concerns.

Armstrong recently called the band's forthcoming trilogy of albums "a crazy idea that happens to be working really well." Speaking to Rolling Stone about '¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!', Armstrong also explained that the new albums will be 'power pop'. He said of the band's fresh musical direction: "We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles."

Green Day will play headline shows at Japan's Summer Sonic festival and France's Rock En Seine in August and a headline slot at I-Day festival in Bologna, Italy on September 2 as well as three shows in Germany in late August.
