Green Day have been reflecting on the success of ‘American Idiot’, and saying that they are looking forward to getting on with a new album in the coming year.
The band say that whilst they’ve enjoyed touring their most recent long player, it’s time to step back and do some more creating. Bassist Mike Dirnt told Billboard that his group are looking forward to getting back “to some of the other aspects of what we do, whether it’s recording or just getting back into the creative process again.”
He continued: “A lot of people just keep going and going and going. It’s important to know when to call it quits for awhile and go home and rejuvenate and detox and write another record.”
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said of the creative process: “We’ll start with silence and that’s how we’ll be able to find the inspiration to find another record.”
