Adeline Records has just announced an April 26th release date for the vinyl version of Green Day’s new live album, Awesome As Fuck. The set (also available on CD with bonus DVD on March 22 via Reprise Records), features explosive performances captured during the multi-platinum rock band’s 2009-2010 World Tour in support of their Grammy® Award-winning album 21st Century Breakdown.
The vinyl version will feature 17 tracks on pink 180 gram double-disc gatefoldvinyl, bundled with an exclusive t-shirt. Fans can pre-order the release here.
Green Day recorded every show on the 21st Century Breakdown tour. When it concluded, the band members, singer-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. An iTunes Exclusive edition of the audio portion will feature two bonus tracks. The footage on the bonus DVD was shot at the band’s show in Tokyo, Japan. The package includes Green Day’s biggest hits and fan favorites, including “21 Guns,” “American Idiot,” “When I Come Around,” and “Good Riddance.” See below for full track-listing.
Critics raved about the 21st Century Breakdown tour, which launched in North America in July of 2009. “As if releasing a wave of energy that had been building up during their four-year hiatus from touring, Green Day poured all their heart and soul into a powerhouse set,” said Rolling Stone, while Spin noted that “the band’s relationship with its audience is disarmingly real.”
Released by Reprise Records on May 15th, 2009, 21st Century Breakdown debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, won a 2009 Grammy Award for “Best Rock Album,” and has sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide. It has spawned the hit singles “Know Your Enemy,” which has been certified gold, and the platinum-selling “21 Guns,” whose video won three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, including “Best Rock Video.”
