Green Day is getting its own episode of the massively popular Facebook-based game Angry Birds Friends, according to the band's publicist. The collaboration, the first with a band by Angry Birds publisher Rovio Entertainment, will feature 10 new themed levels as well as all-new pig characters featuring the likenesses of band members Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt. The episode will also include the new Green Day single, "Oh Love," as well as an exclusive new track called "Troublemaker."
Armstrong said, "We're all fans of Angry Birds. It's such an addictive game that when we first started playing it we couldn't stop."
The episode will arrive sometime this fall, along with more exclusive content.
"Oh Love" is taken from the first of three new albums that Green Day is releasing, Uno!, which arrives on September 25th.
The other two discs, Dos! and Tre!, will follow in November and January.
