Green Day release lyric video for Cigarettes and Valentines

Green Day’s 2009-2010 ‘21st Century Breakdown’ tour proved to be one of the most dazzling and memorable live events of recent years. It saw the trio conquer all corners of the globe and included incendiary UK dates at Wembley Stadium, Manchester’s Lancashire County Cricket Ground and Glasgow’s SECC.

The band’s explosive performances and captivating energy from the tour have been captured in their new live album and DVD ‘Awesome As F**k’ that will be released on March 21st on Reprise Records. Green Day recorded every show on the ‘21st Century Breakdown’ tour. When it concluded, vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool sifted through the audio to deliver the best performances from their shows around the world. The final tracklisting includes a performance each from the Wembley, Manchester and Glasgow shows, as well as other songs captured at venues ranging from Dublin to Japan.

In addition, ‘Awesome As F**k’ also includes a sixteen-track DVD that was filmed in Tokyo. No song performances have been replicated on both the album and the DVD. A deluxe DMD album will also be available with the extra tracks ‘Letterbomb’ and ‘Christie Road’.

A trailer for the album is available at www.greenday.com.

A previously unreleased new song ‘Cigarettes and Valentines’ features on the album and will be released as a single on March 21st. The song’s accompanying lyrics video can be seen at http://bcove.me/9k5qth31.

Released by Reprise Records in May 2009, ‘21st Century Breakdown’ debuted at No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic, sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide and earned Green Day a 2009 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. The album includes the hit singles ‘Know Your Enemy’ and ’21 Guns’. The band also recently won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album for their stage version of ‘American Idiot’.
