Today Green Day announced they are canceling their next scheduled public appearance, a headlining spot at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans late this month, as Billie Joe continues to receive treatment for substance abuse. Their next appearance is late November, the beginning of their US tour. Things are pretty iffy right now in the Green Day camp, but in a nice PR move, Mike talked with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 shortly before the announcement, speaking somewhat candidly about Billie’s health and where the band is right now. On top of that, a new track, the first official taste of Dos!, was leaked. Take a listen, and as far as we know, the next album’s release is still scheduled for November 13th. Below you can listen to Mike’s interview as well.
