Green Day Compile Demos for Record Store Day Release ‘Demolicious’
Every year, Record Store Day gives music lovers some interesting releases to pick up and this year fans will likely be clamoring for the new Green Day offering ‘Demolicious.’ If you can’t tell by the title, the collection consists of Green Day demos recorded during their ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tré!’ album sessions.
The band laid down all 18 demos that appear on ‘Demolicious’ during their time at Jingletown Studios in Oakland, Calif. in 2012. There will also be a couple of extras, as the previously unreleased track ‘State of Shock’ and an acoustic version of ‘Stay the Night’ also turn up in the track listing.
Green Day will reveal the collection on April 19 as a two-disc vinyl release. Fans can purchase it in either red or clear vinyl. The set will also be available to fans on both CD and cassette.
As for Green Day’s current plans, things are scaled back a bit at the moment. The group is currently playing as part of the Soundwave Festival shows in Australia, but no other tour dates are booked beyond that point. Late last year, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong confirmed that the band would be taking a break after the Soundwave shows.
