    21st Century Breakdown—the first new Green Day LP in five years—has been set for a May 15 release date. Garbage member/noted Nirvana producer Butch Vig was behind the boards for the effort, which is a concept album like 2004's American Idiot. The story of a young couple, Christian and Gloria, is told through three acts ("Heroes and Cons," "Charlatans and Saints," "Horseshoes and Handgrenades") and such songs as the leadoff single "Know Your Enemy," which hits digital outlets next month.

    A North American arena tour is expected to touch down in early July, followed by gigs in Europe and a 2010 run through Japan, Southeast Asia, South America and more North American cities.
