Get Ready to Rock with Green Day and We7

By on Monday, 11th May 2009 at 9:00 am

Green Day (side)After an excruciatingly-long five year break (not including their awesome 2008 side-project, Foxboro Hot Tubs), punk-rockers Green Day finally return this month with the apparently “phenomenal” ’21st Century Breakdown’.

The album is set to be released worldwide on May 15th, but lucky for us, rad music service, We7, have blagged exclusive rights to stream the new album online from today (May 11th)…for free!

It’s undeniable that Green Day have big things to live up to, namely in the form of 2004’s worldwide smash, ‘American Idiot’. Amazingly, however, Rolling Stone have gone as far to comment that ’21st Century Breakdown’ makes Green Day’s previous album sounds like a mere “warm-up”, claiming their new release is “better, more masterful and confident”.

‘Know Your Enemy’, the fierce debut single from ’21st Century Breakdown’, has already made waves across the country. But this rockin’ track is just a minor dip into the massive masterpiece that is ‘Breakdown’. The album has 18 tracks, and lasts an electrifying 70 minutes. It’s so long, that Green Day have chosen to split it up into three acts, titled ‘Heroes and Cons’, ‘Charlatans and Saints’ and ‘Horseshoes and Handgrenades’.

So if you just can’t wait to get your hands on the album this Friday, be sure to head over to tomorrow morning to listen to the incredible ’21st Century Breakdown’ in it’s full-blown punk rock glory.

However, the Green Day fun doesn’t stop there, oh no! If you fancy downloading some of their older material while you’re there, We7 will also be offering up the band’s extensive musical back catalogue at a special reduced price in celebration. Plus! On top of all of that, We7 will also be giving away two personalised, framed presentation discs of ’21st Century Breakdown’ to a couple of very lucky winners.

So, for a day, of erm, Green Day, head over to tomorrow for just that!
