Green Day hit the stage at Echoplex in Los Angeles last night for a surprise set filled with cuts from their upcoming album trilogy, ¡UNO! ¡DOS! ¡TRÉ!, Green Day Authority reports. You can check out the pop-punk thrasher – laced with organ, no less – "Nuclear Family" above, along with two other new cuts: "Kill the DJ" and "Wild One." ¡UNO! is set for release September 25th, ¡DOS! will follow November 23rd and ¡TRÉ! is due January 15th, 2013.

"We're changing the guitar sound. We're not going with the big Marshall amp thing," frontman Billie Joe Armstrong recently told Rolling Stone about the trilogy. "We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles. . . . If you listen to it, it feels grand. But it also feels like a garage band."
