Green Day have announced that they will be releasing a boxset of all their studio albums to date.

The punk trio will release the collection, which is titled "The Studio Albums 1990-2009", on August 27 in the UK and on September 4 in the US.

The collection includes all of Green Day's studio albums, which are 1990's "1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours", 1992's "Kerplunk", 1994's "Dookie", 1995's "Insomniac", 1997's "Nimrod", 2000's "Warning", 2004's "American Idiot" and 2009's "21st Century Breakdown".

"The Studio Albums 1990-2009" precedes the release of Green Day's new trilogy of new LPs "¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!", which will be released in three stages, with the first album "¡Uno!" coming out on September 24. The second LP "¡Dos!" comes out on November 12 and "¡Tré!" on January 14, 2013.

The series is the follow-up to Green Day's 2009 studio album "21st Century Breakdown" and signals a move away from the band's spell of producing concept-driven records.

To coincide with the albums' release, the band will release two documentaries. One is being made by Tim Lynch, a producer of the band's recent DVD "Green Day: Bullet In a Bible" and Tim Wheeler, a co-producer and editor of "The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights" and will focus on the making of the band's upcoming three albums. A second documentary is being created from vintage footage from the band's pre-"Dookie" days.

Green Day will play headline shows at Japan's Summer Sonic festival and France's Rock En Seine in August and a headline slot at I-Day festival in Bologna, Italy on September 2 as well as three shows in Germany in late August.

Thanks to NME for the report.

    Because this is the beginning of a brand new era for Green Day.
    I like this too. Pretty sure I will pick it up if the price is reasonable.
    what's the point in having a boxset with nothing new in it? if it's only their studio albums and no b-sides, rare stuff or something, what's the deal?
    Looking forward to 1-2-3 later this year, hopefully a decent new sound for them!
    Its not a matter of saving money buying it or whatnot. It's just a nice collectors item for those of us that enjoy box sets.
    you all do realise it will either be cheaper to buy them indivually or im pretty sure most green day fans have all of them anyway or at least most
