Green Day in new ‘punk’ album shocker!

As well as their forthcoming Greatest Hits CD, rumoured to be named “International Superhits,” original So Cal punks Green Day have announced that they are currently working on a new album.

In an interview with VH1, bassist Mike Dirnt said: “we’ve had a nice break from making hard and fast music [and that] has made us want to do it [again]. What once was old is now new again.”

For those who thought that their last release “Warning” was a little too soft, this news is certainly good news.

Seven songs have so far been written for the new CD and three more are almost finished. The band hopes to get the album out by the end of 2002.

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
