Green Day has announced a return to the stage after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s rehab stint at the upcoming South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

The trio will make its first appearance at the music event on March 15 after screenings of their new documentaries ¡Cuatro! and Broadway Idiot, which will debut at SXSW.

The band was forced to scrap a series of shows and appearances last year after Armstrong checked into rehab for substance abuse issues.

Green Day recently announced plans to resume touring with a gig in Chicago, Illinois on March 28.
