    After an expletive-filled rant at this weekend's iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas, where he was furious that the band's set was cut short, Green Day have announced that singer Billie Joe Armstrong is going to be receiving treatment for substance abuse issues.

    The band posted a note on its Facebook, apologizing for the singer's behavior on Friday (September 21) during their set. All promotional appearances are being postponed. ¡Uno! is out Tuesday (Sept. 25).

    We wish BJA the best as he addresses his issues.
