Green Day to experience 21st Century Breakdown in May

21st Century Breakdownannouncer told the audience

So, what are we to gather from the title? It sounds like classic Green Day pop-punk values, but according to a December interview with front man Billie Joe Armstrong in Alternative Press, it may lean more "power-pop" and less punk. It seems Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool may be leaving the rock for their other project, Foxboro Hot Tubs, who released its first album in 2008.

Also like Idiot, this release will be structurally ambitious, boasting three acts: Heroes and Cons, Charlatans and Saints and Horseshoes and Handgrenades.
