Green Day Unleash ‘X-Kid’ Video, Unveil 2013 European Tour Dates
The latter portion of 2012 has found the members of Green Day mostly off the grid while singer Billie Joe Armstrong completes his rehab. But the band is taking the first steps in regaining their footing, beginning with a new music video and their first announced dates of 2013.
The trio has just delivered perhaps the most lo-fi video ever with their clip for 'X-Kid.' The group pulled from musical touchtones of the past in recording their album trilogy and the video for 'X-Kid' follows suit. The clip, seen above, features a queued up cassette version of the song, with the "play" button pushed allowing the viewer to watch as the track spools along.
Meanwhile, Green Day has been rolling out 2013 dates in anticipation of their return. It looks as though the band will surface again in Europe first before playing other parts of the world. The first date is scheduled for May 24 at Fiera Milano Live in Milan, Italy with shows currently booked through mid-July.
When the band return to the road, they'll have all three albums worth of new material available to them, as 'Tre,' the final piece in their trilogy, recently arrived in stores.
