Green Day Rock Band unveiled

New standalone title to feature the US pop punks

The next title in the rapidly growing Rock Band series has been announced and it'll feature the US pop-punk group Green Day.

According to the release, you can expect the game to focus on the band's "most-defining albums and key moments throughout their career." It's due out sometime next year on 360, PS3 and Wii.

"We've worked with the Rock Band team in the past year to enable our fans to play tracks from 21st Century Breakdown, and we're excited to now be working on a game, spanning our entire career," said Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. "We want people to fire this up, choose their favourite Green Day tracks, and play along with us as Rock Band avatars so they can feel what it's like to perform on stage as Green Day."


Tom Whalley, boss of Warner Records, added, "Green Day's music and explosive live performances transcend age barriers. By partnering with the band and Harmonix, Warner Bros. Reprise is thrilled to help create a Rock Band experience devoted exclusively to their impressive catalogue. This game will appeal to fans of all ages, including those who love their recent best-selling albums and those who've loved Green Day throughout their long, incredible career."
