Green Day are planning to "take a break" after their upcoming Australian tour dates.
In a recent interview with Jo Whiley on her BBC Radio 2 show, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong had this to say: "We’re going to Australia, doing a tour there and then we’re going to take a break. We haven’t really been doing much. So it’s just nice to kind of do some other things, y’know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged."
Armstrong has been busy collaborating with Norah Jones on their Everly Brothers tribute album, which was just released on November 25. The album was recorded in nine days at Manhattan’s Magic Shop and is an homage to the 1958 record, ‘Songs Our Daddy Taught Us’.
