Before Green Day’s new album, “21st Century Breakdown” comes out in May, there will be lots and lots of old Green Day coming your way.
The group’s label, Reprise, is releasing the Bay-area punk pop band’s entire catalog on 12-inch vinyl.
The reissue plan starts March 24 with “39/Smooth”‘ and “Kerplunk,” both of which came out on Lookout! Records in the early ’90s, before the band signed with Reprise.
Its first Reprise album-and major breakthrough-“Dookie”-will come out April 18, the second annual Record Store Day. The rest of the group’s catalog will be rolled out chronologically throughout the year.
The records will be available on 140-gram vinyl and many will include 7-inch singles.
Additionally, Reprise will release a boxed set of Green Day singles spanning both the band’s entire career and the career of their alter egos Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network.
