Check Out: Green Day soundchecks new material!


If you can pry yourself away from Green Day: Rock Band for a moment, you might be psyched to know that there’s some new Green Day material floating around the net. Yes, as in possible material for the trio’s forthcoming studio effort – you know, the one that follows up last year’s 21st Century Breakdown? Reports indicate that the band’s been recording on their days off. But where’s this material coming from?

As the Oakland trio continues to rock across Europe, Billie Joe Armstrong has been treating the band’s sound check like a studio rehearsal. So far, in the past week alone, fans over at The Green Day Authority have snagged three new songs. They first caught the fast yet poppy  “Stay the Night” in Dublin, but then captured two songs in Manchester. The first is a very Replacements-ish tune that goes untitled, while the second Beatles-esque number is being titled, “Dreamcatcher”. Altogether, these songs show some great promise for whatever they’re cooking up. It’s less operatic and more casual, as if they’re keeping it simple and down to Earth. Very nifty.

Odds are these dates will be packed with some great, great surprises. Jesus Christ, Lollapalooza can’t come soon enough.
