Green Day are readying a new live album for release in early 2011.
The album, ‘Awesome As Fuck’, is listed by online retailers as having a US release date of March 15. It is also listed as a two-disc set.
The band first announced they were planning a new live album last August via their official Twitter page, Twitter.com/greenday. “We’ve been recording our live shows since the beginning of tour,” they wrote. “Possible live album coming.”
Now their spokesperson has confirmed to NME that ‘Awesome As Fuck’, which appeared on retail sites before the band confirmed its release, will be that album.
The band’s last live album, 2006’s ‘Bullet In A Bible’, was recorded live in the UK at Milton Keynes Bowl in 2005, and peaked at Number Six in the UK album charts.
