Green Day Plan To Take Hiatus

2013-12-01 by andcas | 67 Comments
Green Day have announced a Hiatus going into effect once they finish up their upcoming Australian tour dates. Billie Joe-Armstrong has stated the trio are still on good terms but simply need a break from it all to take a breather.

"We haven't really been doing much. So it's just nice to kind of do some other things, y'know, [then] when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged."

Of course, this means the members aren't abandoning music all together and will continue to work on side-projects. For the aforementioned tour, those dates will take place next year during February and wrapping up in March.

I liked Uno Dos Tre, but I feel like this is a smart move. If they forced more songs out of themselves after the trilogy, it would likely end up a train wreck.

This has been so overblown, all bands take breaks after an album cycle, this really isn't news.

on a side note, I can't believe Jason White toured with Green Day for ~13 YEARS before becoming a full time member of the band... pretty shitty.

Why is it so weird? It's not like he was writing songs for them or anything. Plus from what I heard they had asked him to be part of the band before and he declined.

"

He was asked but declined since he didn't play on the albums. He played just as much Guitar as Billie on the Trilogy so he became a member once they were released.

I still have such a soft spot for this band.

Most decent bands try to go out with a bang ! Green Day goes into hiatus with a triple crap.

Quite an achievement.

This is what Green Day does every time they finish a world tour, and they always come back.
I think that the break is because they will be doing an American Idiot movie.

Make a fucking addiction album: the darkest one of your careers, and then we'll talk. Because I want to see that happen badly.
