Green Day have posted the video trailer for "¡Dos!", the second album in their forthcoming trilogy album series, "¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre!".
The band’s vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong discussed "¡Dos!" in a recent interview with Rolling Stone:
"People ask me all the time. Even my son asked me, "Dad, would you ever go back to playing songs like from [1994’s] Dookie and [1992’s] Kerplunk?" I love those records. I love the punk stuff I grew up on. But there are so many bands who make the mistake – "We’re going back, old-school." Well, that’s all you’re doing. You already did it. So we’re changing the guitar sound. We’re not going with the big Marshall-amp thing. We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles."
"¡Uno!" will be released on September 25, "¡Dos!" will be released on November 13, and "¡Tre!" will be released on January 15, all through Reprise Records.
