Published Oct 31, 2012Since Green Day recently cancelled all of their tour dates between now and February due to singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's current stint in rehab, it's probably going to be some time before we see the band get back onstage. To tide you over until then, the band have opted to show off a whack of live clips, studio shots and sneak peeks at upcoming teen vampire flick The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in their new video for sappy ballad "The Forgotten."
Pumped full of weepy piano and symphony strings, the track, which will appear on both the Breaking Dawn 2 soundtrack and as the closer on the group's ¡Tre! LP, plays like Pachelbel's Canon in D for today's modern emo bloodsuckers.
If you want to catch Armstrong belting the song out from behind a set of eighty-eights, or have a need to see Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison going for a speedwalk through a luscious forest, now's your chance. The video is streaming down below.
Green Day's ¡Dos! arrives through Reprise on November 13, while ¡Tré! will be issued December 11. The Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack drops November 13.
