Green Day releases trailer to upcoming live album
Wednesday 19 January 2011
On January 10, US punk rock band Green Day released a new trailer teasing their new live album, due to release March 15.
The album, a two-disc set of live recordings titled Awesome As F**k, is listed by online retailers such as Amazon as having a US and UK release date of March 15. Last month music news website NME reported that a spokeswoman for the band confirmed the release date, while the exact date has yet to be made official.
In August, the bandmates first announced via Twitter that they were planning a new live album. "We've been recording our live shows since the beginning of tour," they wrote, referring to their 2009-2010 world tour in support of the LP 21st Century Breakdown. "Possible live album coming."
Green Day has sold over 65 million records worldwide and won four Grammy Awards. The band's last live album, 2006's Bullet in a Bible, was recorded in the UK in 2005. This fall Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong appeared in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical the band helped create, American Idiot - based on the multi-platinum album American Idiot - and he plans to return to the stage in 2011.
