Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has broken his silence regarding his substance abuse and rehab stint last year, which followed a widely-publicized on-stage meltdown at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.

The 41-year-old told Rolling Stone in an interview set to be published in the magazine's Friday print edition that his addiction got so bad that he "couldn't predict" where he "was going to end up at the end of the night."

Green Day has canceled its 2012 tour dates out of concern for the health of singer Billie Joe Armstrong, who is undergoing treatment for substance abuse, while the rock band's 2013 concerts have been postponed.

The group, which had already pulled out of a few gigs in the past few weeks, says that to make up for it, it will release its new album, "ˇTré!," almost a month earlier than planned.

Green Day singer Billy Joe Armstrong is seeking treatment for substance abuse, the group says, two days after the rocker went off on a curse-filled rant during a performance at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.

On Thursday, the band began playing their 1994 hit "Basket Case," when a one-minute warning began flashing at the back of the venue, which prompted Armstrong to yell: "I'm going to play a [expletive] new song. [expletive] this [expletive]. Gimme a [expletive] break. One minute left. One minute [expletive] left. You're going to give me one minute? Look at that sign right there! Let me tell you something, I've been around since 19 [expletive] 88. And you're going to give me one [expletive] minute? You've got to be kidding me!"

Green Day went off on a curse-filled rant during the band's performance at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas on September 21.

Billie Joe Armstrong, the band's 40-year-old lead singer was apparently angry that festival organizers gave them only 30 minutes to perform, according to Yahoo! News. Some media outlets claimed that the band's promised 45 minute set had been cut by 20 minutes, giving the band only a one minute warning.
