Green Day to Take a Break After Completing Australian Tour


Green Day


In an interview with a British radio, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong says that he and his bandmates need a break to charge their batteries.

Green Day has announced that they are going to "take a break" following their upcoming Australian tour scheduled for 2014. After touring Down Under in February and March, the punk band will take their time off as a band to focus on their other projects.

"We're going to Australia, doing a tour there and then we're going to take a break," frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said in an interview with Britain's BBC Radio 2. "We haven't really been doing much. So it's just nice to kind of do some other things, you know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged."

The "American Idiot" hitmakers are lined up to play five shows at Australia's Soundwave Festival, which will kick off in Sydney on February 22. They will head to Melbourne and Adelaide before wrapping things up in Perth on March 3.

Armstrong has been busy with his non-Green Day project. He recently collaborated with Norah Jones for "Foreverly", a country album in which the two singers reworked Everly Brothers' songs. The duet record marks Armstrong's first project since entering rehab to treat his substance abuse last year.
