Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Has Formed A New Band!


Green Day’s lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong has teased on social media that he’s formed a new band. The new act are entitled The Longshot.

Green Day are taking some down time at the moment after 2016’s much loved ‘Revolution Radio‘ and last year’s compilation record ‘God’s Favourite Band‘. They have also been spending time playing gigs as a cover band. The NME reports that Armstrong has been sharing visuals in the form of Instagram posts to promote his new act The Longshot.

The art work features scribbled faces and rats, the posts also link to a profile page which says that the new album ‘Love Is For Losers’ is ‘coming eventually sooner or later. Probably sooner’.
