GREEN DAY’S DOCUMENTARY FILM ¡CUATRO! TO BE RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 24TH
LOS ANGELES, CA – September 17, 2013 – Reprise Records’ Green Day today announced that their documentary film ¡Cuatro! will be released via iTunes, Amazon, Qello, and on DVD on September 24th. ¡Cuatro! pulls back the curtain and takes fans inside the world of Green Day, from the various spontaneous live performances in select cities around the U.S. to the chronicling of their creative process while conceptualizing and recording their recent trilogy of albums: Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, Green Day ¡Tré! To pre-order ¡Cuatro! on Amazon, click HERE.
¡Cuatro! was directed by Tim Wheeler and produced by Tim Lunch for Farm League. Highlights from the documentary originally premiered last fall on MTV2 and Palladia and the film premiered in full at the 20th Anniversary South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and opened the Newport Film Festival.
“Over the last year while we were recording our trilogy, we posted multiple clips every week so fans can see parts of the recording process of ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!,” said bassist Mike Dirnt. “¡Cuatro! brings our fans one step closer by giving them even more access and revealing what it was like for us to make these records.”
