“Obviously, the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern,” bassist Mike Dirnt said in a statement. “We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon."
With Armstrong working on his recovery, the band has decided to move up the release date for “¡Tré!,” the final installment of its trilogy. Initially planned to hit stores Jan. 15, the disc will now arrive Dec. 11.
“We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned,” drummer Tré Cool added in the statement. “If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.”
We wish Billie Joe well.
