I’m assuming these updates are now a weekly thing, which is music to my ears (literally). This is like the less polished, more grunge Green Day. Or as Billie Joe likes to describe it: the sexy-“It’s Fuck TIme”-Green Day. I dig it. A lot. ¡Dos! will be released two months after ¡Uno! on November 13.
So this morning I awoke to a lovely little email from the Idiot Club, Green Day’s official members-only fan club, announcing that an official album trailer and cover art for the first installment of Green Day’s new trilogy was now available for my viewing. Naturally, I let out a slight squeal, called my mother, and logged in. Luckily, the trailer can now be accessed by the general public and I am able to share it. The song featured in the trailer is unlike anything I’ve ever heard from Green Day. It has a very Lo-fi psychedelic sound infused with the band’s signature punk attitude, much like their side project/alter ego The Foxboro Hot Tubs. Needless to say, September 25 will be a very special day for me.
