LONDON -- The band who produced hits like Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), has devised an innovative way to promote the release of their latest album, 21st Century Breakdown. Most of us would agree that music and fine art are two complimentary creative outlets. With that in mind, Green Day commissioned a group of hand-selected artists to design album covers inspired by lyrics from the songs on 21st Century Breakdown.
The Art of Rock exhibition, featuring the album covers, is on now view at the StolenSpace Gallery in London, where the band is currently on tour. The paintings included in the show were created by artists such as; Logan Hicks (also the show's curator), Ron English, The London Police, C215 and Will Barras.
“Seeing the pieces that our new album has inspired is very exciting. We feel a strong connection to that type of creative expression; we think the fans coming out will love it," said band leader Billie Joe Armstrong. Rock on, Green Day._________________
