Rovio and Green Day team up for new Angry Birds Friends episode


These days it's almost impossible to go somewhere and not see Angry Birds or hear Green Day, so it is only natural that the two team together.

Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment has announced a partnership with Grammy Award-winning band Green Day to bring us a new musical episode for Angry Birds Friends.

“We are beyond excited,” said Rovio CMO and Mighty Eagle Peter Vesterbacka. “Two amazing brands working together on a one-of-a-kind collaboration — we can’t wait for our fans to explore this new Green Day world.”

The episode will feature 10 all-new themed levels, as well as new bad pig characters inspired by Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mirk Dirnt, and Tre Cool. Fans will also be able to access specially created content like Green Day's latest single "Oh Love" and an exclusive song, "Troublemaker".

“We’re all fans of Angry Birds,” said Armstrong. “It’s such an addictive game that when we first started playing it we couldn’t stop. Go Team Green!”

The update is expected to arrive later this fall.
