Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has launched his debut EP for his punk side project the Longshot. There’s three songs available to listen below and they are ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Chasing a Ghost’ and ‘Love Is for Losers’.
It isn’t a million miles away from his main band Green Day. ‘Taxi Driver’ is a no holes barred punk number where the front man seeks to get away from the city in a Taxi ride. It’s a catchy track and short and sweet coming in at 2 mins 30 secs. Armstrong sings, ‘ Taxi driver, I’m rolling/ Taxi driver, I’m rolling like a stone.’
‘Love is for Losers’, sees Armstrong offer advice on matters of the heart, he also throws in some pretty awesome guitar solos for good measure. It’s a mid tempo rock stomp.
‘Chasing a Ghost’ is an anti hero’s anthem, Billie sings a disheartened punk pop lament about partying, it seems like chasing any thrills is a pointless endeavor!
Armstrong hasn’t said much about the Longshot. In February, an Instagram account popped up, and in a post, the group said their first album would be called, Love Is for Losers but still release date as of yet.
