Green Day will release some demo recordings to mark Record Store Day 2014.
A post on the Green Day Facebook page alerted fans that, “We are releasing 18 demos, including an unreleased track, from the Uno, Dos and Tres sessions, exclusively for @recordstoreday. It will come out on colored #vinyl, #CD and even #cassette”.
Green Day will release Demolicious – a collection of 18 demos recorded at Jingletown Studios in Oakland, CA, in 2012 during the sessions for the band’s Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, Green Day ¡Tré! album trilogy – in conjunction with Record Store Day on April 19th, 2014. The two-disc set will be released on red or clear vinyl, and will also be available on CD and cassette.
In addition to the 18 demos, Demolicious includes a previously unreleased track, “State of Shock,” and an acoustic version of “Stay The Night” from Green Day ¡Uno!.
Green Day are currently in Australia as headline act for Soundwave and played in Sydney and Brisbane last weekend. They also played a secret show in a Sydney pub last week, with fans only finding out about the show a few hours before showtime via Billie Joe Armstrong’s Twitter account.
Green Day’s next Australian show will be this Friday on Soundwave Melbourne.
