Green Day has announced that the band will be taking a hiatus after they tour Australia in February and March of 2014. According to the band, the hiatus will allow the band members to focus on other projects.
Billie Joe Armstrong said to Britain’s BBC Radio 2 that, “We’re going to Australia, doing a tour there, and then we’re going to take a break. We haven’t really been doing much. So it’s just nice to kind of do some other things, you know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged.”
