Meanwhile, the Green Day frontman recently spoke about his band’s next album, what will be their twelfth studio effort.
Armstrong told Rolling Stone: “There’s definitely a great spirit going on. We’ve always been pretty charged up… I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them… We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.”
Green Day last released their trilogy of albums, ‘Uno!’, ‘Dos!’ and ‘Tre!’, in 2012. The final part of those was the band’s lowest-charting album in the UK since 1992’s ‘Kerplunk’, reaching Number 31. They also released ‘Demolicious’, an album of alternative takes from the trilogy sessions featuring unreleased song ‘State Of Shock’, for Record Store Day in 2014.
The group’s producer Rob Cavallo recently confirmed that they have “five new songs” already written for their next album. Now, in this new interview, Armstrong elaborated: “I’ve got, like, four or five songs right now. I’m gonna take it really slow. I’m just gonna make sure every moment is inspired and that we have something that’s really special to us. And right now with the songs that we have, it’s going in the right direction.”
