On Friday, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong released the debut album from his side project, The Longshot. The 11-track record, titled Love is for Losers, features Armstrong alongside his newly assembled group, consisting of Kevin Preston on guitar, David S. Field on the drums and Green Day’s touring guitarist, Jeff Matika, on the bass.
The Longshot hinted at their album’s release last week with a three-song EP, encouraging fans on their newly formed Instagram page to spread rumors about their album and the identities of the band members. Upon the album’s release, The Longshot took to their preferred social media platform to incite a wave of anarchy.
