Green Day have released an official statement revealing the follow up to 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown will come in the form of three albums, released in close proximity to one another.
Word was first spread via Twitter, when frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tweeted the following:
Ok. Here’s the deal. We’re making a 3 album trilogy. Not 1. Not 2. But 3 albums. Called ¡UNO! ¡DOS! ¡TRE! Coming September November January

In an official press release, issued by Reprise Records on the band’s website, the band said: “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.
“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” they added.
