Band will release 18 demos from ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! sessions on April 19
Green Day have announced plans to release 18 demos as part of this year’s Record Store Day.
The 18 demos, including a previously unreleased track, will be available on April 19, this year’s Record Store Day. A Facebook post from the band confirmed the plans as well as stating that the collection of music from recording sessions from the 2012 ‘¡Uno!’, ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tré!’ trilogy will be available on coloured vinyl, CD and cassette.
Chuck D was recently named as the official ambassador of Record Store Day 2014. Speaking about his appointment, he commented: “In this age where industry has threaded the music sound with virtual sight and story I am honored to be called upon to be Record Store Day Ambassador of 2014. With the masses, neck bent into their smartphones, let all of us music lovers GPS our way into a reality that is the Record Store. It’s worth a great try, let’s do this.”
Meanwhile, Green Day previously revealed that they plan to take a ‘break’ following a string of Australian tour dates.
Speaking to Jo Whiley in 2013, frontman Armstrong said: “We’re going to Australia, doing a tour there and then we’re going to take a break. We haven’t really been doing much. So it’s just nice to kind of do some other things, y’know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged.”
