Green Day To Soundtrack CSI: NY Episode
Green Day are set to soundtrack a new episode of US television crime drama CSI: NY. Several tracks from the band's new trio of albums "¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre!" will be used on the TV show to narrate some speech-free action sequences, CBS Local reports. The episode, which will centre around the murder of a political candidate, will air on CBS on October 19. "We were stoked when we found out CSI: NY wanted to use our music instead of dialogue to narrate the first few acts of the episode," a statement from the band said. "It's the first time something like this has been done on the series, and we are blown away with what we've seen." Tracks to be featured include "Stop When The Red Lights Flash", "Amy", "Night Life", "The Forgotten" and "Kill The DJ". Earlier this week (October 8), bass player Mike Dirnt spoke out about frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's public meltdown and subsequent visit to rehab, saying that the punk pop trio had cancelled "everything" over the coming few weeks as "we had to put the life of our friend in front of everything". Meanwhile, Billie Joe Armstrong appeared on US TV talent contest The Voice earlier this week (October 8), in an episode which was recorded before he entered rehab. It featured the singer as a mentor on Christina Aguilera's team to help her acts progress in the competition. Green Day released their new album "iUno!", last month (September 24). The rest of the new album trilogy will be released in two other stages with the second LP, "¡Dos!", coming out on November 12 and "¡Tre!" on January 14, 2013. Thanks to NME for the report.
