Can it tune into 'Revolution Radio'?
Green Day have unveiled the perfect gift in time for Christmas – a box set of all of their albums on cassette complete with an old-school boombox.
The set, which you can pre-order here just in time for Christmas, features the pop-punk heroes’ 13 studio albums on cassette in leather-esque presentation box, along with an official Green Day boombox and a sticker sheet to decorate it with.
The below can be yours for £250 and will be released for delivery on December 16.
Meanwhile, the band are set to return to the UK next year on their massive ‘Revolution Radio‘ tour.
“You know it’s great, we’re playing songs off ‘Nimrod’, ‘Kerplunk’, the new record, ‘American Idiot’, songs that are off ‘Insomniac’ that we haven’t played in over 20 years,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told NME of what to expect from the shows. “We played these shows for the hardcore fans in the theatres and clubs and we just had a blast, and you could tell because the energy in the crowd was energising us.”
“They expect us to be great, and we have to live up to that. We just put as much passion as we can into what we do. We write the record together, we make the record together, and it’s our record at the point. When it’s finished, on the day it gets released, it doesn’t belong to us any more. It belongs to the fans.”
Bassist Mike Dirnt added: “We have a thing where either we’ll work it out at soundcheck, or we’ll just make a mess, make something memorable happen on the spot. That’s the one thing about this band – we just jump into stuff, even if it’s in the middle of a show.”
