Green Day have announced another European festival headline show for later this year.
The band, who confirmed earlier this year that they had entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2009’s ’21st Century Breakdown’, will headline I-Day festival in Bologna, Italy on September 2.
The Italian show is the third date the band have confirmed for 2012, having previously announced headline slots at Japan’s Summer Sonic festival and France’s Rock En Seine event. Both those shows will take place in August.
Over the weekend, the pop punk trio also debuted another video teaser on their official YouTube channel.
The video, shot in black and white, opens with the band standing in the studio with the sound of a scuzzy bass guitar playing in the background.
The band have previously said that their new ninth studio album will move away from the concepts of their last two records ‘American Idiot’ and ’21st Century Breakdown’ and be more straightforward.
Green Day’s American Idiot musical will tour the UK later this year.
