Green Day to release trilogy
2012-04-11 by Ryan Fitz | 147 Comments
Remember back in the nineties, when you thought to yourself "Man I can never get enough Green Day," well
that is about to be severely tested. The profilic punk band is currently in the studio recording three albums
– a trilogy entitled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré! – that will be released by Reprise Records on Tuesday, September
25th 2012; Tuesday, November 13th 2012 and Tuesday, January 15th 2013 respectively.

“We are at the most prolific and creative time in our lives. This is the best music we’ve ever written, and the
songs just keep coming,” said the members of Green Day. “Instead of making one album, we are making a
three album trilogy. Every song has the power and energy that represents Green Day on all emotional levels.
We just can’t help ourselves… We are going epic as fuck!”

Objectively speaking, this may also be translated as "And we thought, why make one shitty album when we
can make three even shittier ones!"

The albums are being produced by the band’s long-time producer Rob Cavallo.

A lot of people are on the fence with Green Day these days, and it seems they're putting everything on the line here. Either they're going to crash and burn or they're going to regain a lot of respect.

Either way, I do find this kind of exciting. I just hope they have enough good songs up their sleeve to pull this off.

Personally, I found 21st Century Breakdown to be pretty disappointing, but I really like what I've been hearing from the new leaked songs.

I personally found that while 21CB was by far my least favorite green day album, it wasn't horrendous. I am looking forward to this regardless of how it turns out. I never got into them when they were coming up and yes I was one of the masses that got into them from AI but im not naive enough to know that they've changed as a band whether for better or for worse.

I'm feeling a mixture of excitement and apprehension about the whole thing.
Green Day are a great band, though history tells us that they’ve released a few stinkers. 21st Century Breakdown was a let-down with all the stolen riffs and terrible lyrics backing it up, but this is one band that produces a few great tracks, even at their worst they aren’t ever that bad really. I’m just really hoping they drop this act that they've carried with them for the last seven to eight years now, it’s getting awfully boring. And anyway, grown ass men in their forties just should not have to wear that much make-up lol. I’m starting to wonder if it’s a personal choice or they are being bullied into it by shotgun elitist fans and their terrible, to be feared, rage.
