Billie Joe Armstrong Teases New Project The Longshot
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has a long history of keeping active with side projects, including the punk rock band Pinhead Gunpowder, Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network. The singer-guitarist recently added what looks to be another band to the mix with a new project called The Longshot.
Armstrong began teasing the new band sharing a series of Instagram posts with his 1.8 million followers. The cryptic posts all share a punk vibe complete with GIF rats and hand-written logos, all promoting the project’s name and its new private Instagram page, which states The Longshot’s new album Love Is for Losers is “coming eventually sooner or later. Probably sooner.”
Things have been fairly quiet in the Green Day camp over the last few months as the band is taking a musical break to focus on the movie adaptation of their 2004 masterpiece American Idiot with HBO.
It’s been ten years since Green Day’s side project, Foxboro Hot Tubs, released their debut album Stop, Drop and Roll. For that project, Armstrong went by the name Reverend Strychnine Twitch. Armstrong’s last project outside of Green Day was Foreverly, his 2013 album with Norah Jones. Check out the posts below.
