Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong posts photo from the studio

Band look set to follow-up their 2012 album trilogy

Green Day have hinted that they are recording new music, with frontman Billie Joe Armstrong uploading a picture from the studio.

The pop-punk band recently dropped a surprise festive single called ‘Xmas Time of the Year’, released via the group’s Twitter page on Christmas Eve while wishing them “Happy Holidays”.

The new song was the first release from Armstrong and co since the band’s 2012 ‘Uno!’, ‘Dos!’ and ‘Tré!’ album trilogy.


Now Armstrong has taken to his official Instagram account to post a picture of himself behind a microphone, with a caption that reads: “January 2016”. See the photo beneath.

Back in April 2015, long-time producer Rob Cavallo said that the band had been back in the studio and had recorded five tracks.

“Let me tell you, they were just fantastic. He is absolutely at the top of his game,” Cavallo said of Armstrong’s work. “Fans can be sure that when they do return, the music will be amazing.”

Green Day were also inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame last April, 25 years since their first studio album ’39/Smooth’ was released.
