With three new albums' worth of material to work with, Green Day has announced a late 2012/early 2013 run of North America that coincides with the upcoming releases of "¡Uno!," "¡Dos!," and "¡Tré!."

On Jan. 7, Green Day kicks off a proper arena trek in Green Bay, Wis., and wraps things up 21 dates later in Las Vegas. Tickets for the North America leg of the veteran rock group's tour go on sale on Sept. 14 and 15, while members of the band's fan club, Idiot Club, will have a chance to snag them on Sept. 12. In addition, Green Day will perform at New York's Irving Plaza on Sept. 15 to help celebrate the launch of new streaming service Nokia Music.

"The whole process and the cycle is all about chaos," Billie Joe Armstrong told Billboard in July about the massive promotional plan for "¡Uno!," "¡Dos!," and "¡Tré!," which will be released on Sept. 25, Nov. 13 and Jan. 15, respectively. "It's all about shooting from every single direction we possibly can. There's no format to what we do. There's no rules. And it's just a big breath of rock 'n' roll fresh air, and it's a big f--k-you to everybody at the same time."

"Oh Love," the lead single from "¡Uno!," stays at No. 1 on this week's Rock Songs chart, marking a sixth week atop the chart. Last Tuesday, the group premiered the official music video for "Kill the DJ," and on Thursday night Green Day performed "Let Yourself Go" at the MTV Video Music Awards. All three new songs will appear on "¡Uno!," which follows 2009's "21st Century Breakdown."
