Green Day is steamrolling through their frontman drama to meet the November 13th release date of ¡Dos!, the second installment in its planned trilogy of albums. They've begun watering the seeds of interest with a 50-second trailer clip for the album, which you can watch below. Snippets of ”Stop When The Red Lights Flash”, “Fuck Time”, and “Stray Heart!" can be heard in the clip.
As for the status of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who entered rehab and cancelled several live dates after an on-air expletive-laden outburst at the iHeartRadio festival, details are still unclear. Producer Rob Cavallo recently commented on Armstrong’s situation to Rolling Stone: “His doctors are still evaluating. All I can say is I don’t know if we’ll see him before or after Christmas. It’s basically undetermined when he’ll be back.”
Not an entirely promising development, but at least the man's safely being cared for. We'll keep you posted on developments.
