Green Day working on new music ahead of UK tour

Ahead of their visit to Scotland this summer, pop-punk legends Green Day have been pictured back in the recording studio and appear to be working on a new album.

The band, who are currently on tour in Australia, are due in the UK next month for a series of massive outdoors gigs, including one at Glasgow, Bellahouston Park on July 4.

Perth-based producer Charlie Young posted a number of photos of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong to social media.

On Instagram, he wrote in a caption: “Recording Green Day.”

Green Day’s latest album, Revolution Radio, was released in October 2016.

Speaking about the band’s current tour, Armstrong told NME recently: “You know it’s great, we’re playing songs off Nimrod, Kerplunk, the new record, American Idiot, songs that are off Insomniac that we haven’t played in over 20 years.

“We played these shows for the hardcore fans in the theatres and clubs and we just had a blast, and you could tell because the energy in the crowd was energising us.

“They expect us to be great, and we have to live up to that. We just put as much passion as we can into what we do. We write the record together, we make the record together, and it’s our record at the point. When it’s finished, on the day it gets released, it doesn’t belong to us any more. It belongs to the fans.”
