Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has revealed on his Twitter page that the band has “a ton of new songs” for their ninth studio album.
He also wrote that the band “has been jamming new songs everyday. There’s a ton of new songs. The direction is fresh and [high-energy].”
Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, Tre Cool, and Jason White are “collaborating and having the best time playing music,” he added.
After Green Day’s 2009 release of their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, the group saw their 2004 effort American Idiot adapted into a successful Broadway show, which completed its run on April 24 after 448 performances. The band also released a live album in March.
Green Day has yet to reveal a release date for their upcoming album.
