Green Day To Release 18 Demos on Record Store Day

By Jay Tilles

In conjunction with this year’s Record Store Day, the celebration of vinyl slingers worldwide, Green Day have announced the release 18 demos, including an unreleased track, from the ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! sessions. According to the band’s Facebook page, the package will be offered on colored ‪vinyl, ‎CD and even ‎cassette on April 19.

This isn’t the first time Green Day has contributed unique offerings to Record Store Day. In 2011 the band released a 7” single featuring Hüsker Dü’s “Don’t Want to Know if You Are Lonely” as well as their take on the 1986 song. Two years prior, Billie Joe and crew honored record retailers by reissuing the classic punk album Dookie on green translucent vinyl.

As exciting as this news may be, several questions remain. Will the band release everything as a package or as individual singles? And, who knew there was a cassette manufacturing facility still in operation?
