Green Day is an American rock band formed in 1989. The band consists of three core members: Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar, lead vocals), Mike Dirnt (bass) and Tré Cool (drums).
Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label. Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie became a breakout success in 1994 and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone. As a result, Green Day was widely credited, along with fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States. Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum, double platinum and gold status respectively. Its 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling 5 million copies in the U.S.

guys, this is fucking insane... n-am mai văzut pe nimeni așa ceva să facă hahah
Well it looks like Billie has found his way back onto Twitter again and today he tweeted about how the band will be releasing three new albums.
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
Billie also tweeted a video where he explains the three album trilogy to us, [url=#http://yfrog.com/3xomqz]check it out[/url].
The Idiot Club just posted a press release confirming three albums, ¡Uno! in September, ¡Dos! in November, and ¡Tré! in January 2013 and will be released by Reprise Records.
The press release also included a quote from the band:
"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!"
At first I was quite skeptical, remember when Billie tweeted last June about how the next album would be released on cassette only? After the Idiot Club and GreenDay.com posted about the new albums my level of skepticism has lowered considerably.
An updated press release has been released with release dates for each album. ¡Uno! on Tuesday, September 25th 2012, ¡Dos! on Tuesday, November 13th 2012, and ¡Tré! on Tuesday, January 15th 2013
