In this week’s Kerrang! magazine, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong reveals that the punk heroes have already started work on the follow-up to last year’s 21st Century Breakdown.
Despite making fans wait five years in between 2004’s American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, Armstrong promises that the as-yet-untitled follow-up will be completed sooner rather than later.
The vocalist says that the punk trio used their downtime wisely during their European tour last October, spending their time off between arena shows in recording studios across the continent rather than sleep their days away in luxury hotels.
“We did some demos in Berlin, some in Stockholm, some just outside of Glasgow and some in Amsterdam,” he tells K!. “We wanted get [the songs] down in some early form."
