It promises to be a big year for the Grammy-winning trio, which is on the verge of releasing their eighth album, ’21st Century Breakdown,’ in May with a highly anticipated world tour to follow.
The band was formed in 1987, and initially released several recordings on independent labels. Their breakthrough came in 1994 with the release of Dookie on Reprise Records, their first major label album. They haven’t looked back since, and hit their highest peak with American Idiot, their last studio recording.
That was nearly five years ago, so it stands to reason that fans are anxiously awaiting to hear the latest from Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool. It’s hard to envision by now that these guys are capable of putting anything out that doesn’t hit the jackpot.
So, happy birthday Billie Joe. See you in the summer.
