Green Day may have canceled the rest of their 2012 tour dates, but the show must go on. On ¡Dos!, the second installment in their ongoing album trilogy, the band serves up a short but sweet platter of 13 tracks that rock hard and fast. Opener "See You Tonight" features Billie Joe Armstrong by himself, singing over light guitar strums and clocks in at barely over a minute. "Fuck Time" kicks things up a notch, packing retro guitar riffs over forceful drums, and from there, Green Day never look back, cramming the rest of the record full of garage-rock snarl ("Makeout Party"), vintage pop-punk ("Ashley") and bubblegum hooks (single "Stray Heart"). ¡Dos! may be over quickly, but the tracks will stick around in your head for quite a while.
¡Dos! is due November 13th and available for pre-order now.
