Transcript for Green Day on Releasing 3 Albums Before 2013
It was three years before they inspired the first-ever "gma" mosh pit. Now, three albums coming out from this supergroup. Called "uno," "dos," and tres." Thanks for getting up extremely early. Billie joe, this is what bands used to do. You had to do three albums in four months. Where did you get the idea? Basically, just started writing a bunch of songs. We had a handful of songs. Instead of doing a double record, we had around 30 songs, we decided to keep going. We were having a good time with it. So, we're like, let's put out like a three-volume set. How are they going to be different? Do you intend them to land differently? The first record is classic, green day sounding. It dates back to "kerpluk" or dookie." And the next one is garagey. Like a hot tub meets hell. And the third one is like a finale of the three. So, it's pretty -- to start off with writing a few songs and ending up becoming epic in the long run. And world tour starting in november. Excited to get this music to the masses? Yeah. Playing theaters on the west coast. And then, it's off to the races
