Green Day Start Recording Ninth Studio Album

Written by Lisa Morrison on February 15, 2012

Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, announced via Twitter yesterday that the punk rockers have started recording their ninth studio album.

@BJAofficial: “Happy Valantine’s day! Officially started recording the new record today. It’s FUCK TIME!!!!”

The final sentence refers to It’s Fuck Time, a song originally intended for the groups 60s-influenced side-project, Foxboro Hot Tubs, but which has also been performed by Green Day.

The band debuted their new material at a secret Halloween concert in New York last year, which saw 300 fans pack out Webster Hall and was recorded for a documentary about the group’s creative process.

Clad in fancy dress, they performed a set that consisted of around half new material, including singles Wow, That’s Loud and Make Out Party.

Rolling Stone described the new tracks as a departure from their politically-charged previous efforts.

The trios last album, 21st Century Breakdown, was released in 2009.
