Green Day working with Nirvana producer

Butch Vig's bandmate Shirley Manson confirms rumours

Green Day are working on new material with former Nirvana producer and Garbage drummer Butch Vig, according to Vig‘s bandmate Shirley Manson.

Manson confirmed that Vig was working with the band in an interview on ‘MTV’s Last Call With Carson Daly’.

Asked whether Garbage were going to record any new material, Manson said: “I don’t know, to be honest. We’re sort of doing our different things. Butch is producing Green Day, so he’s busy, so we’ll see.”

No more details about the sessions have yet emerged.

Green Day reappeared under the name Foxboro Hot Tubs last year. Their last album under their usual moniker was 2004’s ‘American Idiot’.
