The band have confirmed that they will not embark on a planned club tour or perform any live television sets until 2013, following health concerns regarding frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.
They have also announced plans to postpone their January and February 2013 dates, while the singer makes a full recovery.
"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," Mike Dirnt stated on their official website.
"We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to see you all again soon."
Tré Cool added: "We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned.
"If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing."
The band's new album ¡Dos! is still scheduled for a November 12 (US: November 13) release, while ¡Tré! will now be released on December 10 (US: December 11).
