Green Day Offer Free Stream of ‘¡Dos!’ Album
Green Day may be out of commission at the moment while singer Billie Joe Armstrong continues his substance abuse rehab, but you would never know it from how prominently they've kept fans enthralled with new music. That continues with the new stream of the '¡Dos!' album on RollingStone.com, a full week ahead of its Nov. 13 release.
The high-energy, upbeat disc will be a solid one for the band once they finally do return to the road. 'F--- Time' features some Georgia Satellites-like good time guitar licks; 'Stop When the Red Lights Flash' has that infectious vibe that could make it an eventual single; 'Makeout Party' has a great garage-rock feel; and 'Stray Heart' is just an immediate radio-friendly rocker that's the perfect choice for the lead single.
The full '¡Dos!' disc drops next Tuesday (Nov. 13) and now competes with the '¡Uno!' album released earlier this year for listeners' full attention. The third disc in the trilogy, '¡Tre!,' was recently pushed forward to a Dec. 11 release after the band realized they would be unable to tour leading up to the album's original Jan. 15 street date.
