The band were trending on Twitter after Billie Joe Armstrong announced release details of the trilogy.

The new albums will be called '¡UNO!', '¡DOS!' and '¡TRE!'

Green Day will begin bringing them out one at a time towards the end of the year - Tuesday September 25 2012; Tuesday November 13 2012 and Tuesday January 15 2013.

The band are currently still in the studio in their hometown of Oakland in California working on the mass release follow up to 21st Century Breakdown.

"We are at the most prolific and creative time in our lives. This is the best music we've ever written, and the songs just keep coming," Green Day commented. "Instead of making one album, we are making a three album trilogy.  Every song has the power and energy that represents Green Day on all emotional levels.  We just can't help ourselves... We are going epic as fuck!"
