Best Coast, the proudly Southern Californian duo of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, have matured in both their sound and perspective with the highly acclaimed sophomore record, The Only Place which was released May 15th, 2012 on Mexican Summer. This follow-up to 2010's Crazy For You was launched in tandem with Cosentino's capsule collection for Urban Outfitters and landed them the cover of Spin Magazine. The band have performed recently on Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon Show, and Conan O'Brien and received heaps of critical praise from editorial outlets that include NPR, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Pitchfork, Nylon, Rolling Stone and The Guardian.
Green Day, which is vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tré Cool, are touring in support of their upcoming trilogy of albums Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré!, which Rolling Stone described as, "...heavier and hardened from their time in the trenches but back in the garage, ready for rapture." Green Day ¡Uno! will be released by Reprise Records on September 25, 2012 followed by Green Day ¡Dos! on November 13, 2012, and Green Day ¡Tré! on January 15, 2013. The albums are the follow-up to the Grammy Award-winning 21st Century Breakdown, and were produced by the band's long-time producer Rob Cavallo.
