Green Day frontman Billy Joe Armstrong discussed their forthcoming album in a recent interview. He said:
"I’m pushing myself to be progressive in songwriting and being a songwriter. I come from a culture where I’m into great albums, and I still believe in that.

Everybody uses Pro Tools now, you know–we use Pro Tools, and we use tape. "
