Green Day's first two albums will be reissued for the first time by the punk trio's Reprise Records label on December 19.
Green Day's first two albums, "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour" and "Kerplunk", originally released by the band's former label Lookout! and reissued by the same label in 2004, will be reissued by Reprise Dec. 19 later this year.
As of the first-mentioned set, the LP will feature extra content originally included in the Lookout! 2004 reissue, such as 20 minutes of live performances from 1990-1991, Billie Joe Armstrong's handwritten lyrics, show flyers, and a 1991 radio interview.
Elsewhere, the second one, "Kerplunk", it will not have any bonus material. In other Green Day news, the band is at work on the follow-up to its Grammy-winning 2004 smash "American Idiot."
