Green Day Live Album on Vinyl?

Green Day’s Live Album To Come Out On Vinyl

By Andrew Tijs

Green Day’s excitably-titled new album will come out on double pink vinyl with an exclusive tee-shirt.

The album, Awesome As Fuck, will be released on pink 180-gram double gatefold vinyl by Adeline Records on April 26.

The package will also include an exclusive tee-shirt, all available for pre-order at Adeline’s online store here.

The band recorded all the shows on their 21st Century Breakdown Tour and selected the best performances for the 17-track live album from places as disparate as Berlin, Brisbane, Glasgow and Dallas.

There will be an accompanying DVD shot in Tokyo and the iTunes version will feature two bonus tracks.

The CD and DVD pack will be released through Reprise on March 22.

(How do you like the album's title? Vinyl? How many people will buy a turntable to play the new album? Good thing they also will release it on CD and on iTunes. I know that vinyl records have a more warm sound to them and the artwork on albums is great, but I can only imagine the vinyl record is being marketed to the vinyl collectors out there. I was sad when albums became dinosaurs in the music world but now seems they're a collector piece, glad I still have a turntable ;O & albums from yesteryear :) )
