Green Day taking a break after tour

Billie Joe Armstrong says Green Day will take a break next year

Green Day have said they will be taking a break to recharge after finishing their 2014 Australian tour.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told Jo Whiley in a BBC Radio 2 interview about their plans for a rest, according to Digital Spy.

He confirmed: "We're going to Australia, doing a tour there and then we're going to take a break.

"We haven't really been doing much. So it's just nice to kind of do some other things, y'know, [then] when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged."

Billie Joe has recently worked with Norah Jones on a remake of The Everly Brothers album Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, covering many of the classic hits and calling their tribute album Foreverly.

Green Day will play five Australian shows as part of Soundwave Festival in 2014, including shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, which start in February and finish in Perth at the beginning of March.

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
