GREEN Day have confirmed that the release date of their hugely anticipated new album will be May 15, 2009.

Named 21st Century Breakdown, the record will be unveiled worldwide on the same date, so that fans all over the world will get the same opportunity to hear it first!

In what looks set to be another typically ambitious project, like 2004’s world conquering American Idiot, the new LP will be divided into three acts – Heroes & Cons, Charlatans & Saints and Horseshoes & Handgrenades.

According to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong it “follows a young couple, Christian and Gloria, through the mess and promise of the century so far”.

Armstrong recently told the NME that the album was fuelled by his continued distrust of politicians.

The first single from the album will be Know Your Enemy, and is due for release in April. Expect demand to be massive!
