Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Is Teasing A New Musical Project

Written by Emmy Mack on April 4, 2018

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is up to something that isn’t Green Day.

He’s just started teasing the crap out of a new musical project on Instagram dubbed ‘The Longshot’ via a series of cryptic video posts.

So far, alls we know is that it’s a four piece and they’re about to drop a new album titled Love Is For Losers.

No word on who else is in BJ’s new non-Green Day band but you can feel free to try and make a positive ID based on this artist rendering:

TBH they all look about as stumped as we are.

From the band’s artwork and album title though we’re guessing this project is going to be old school punk AF — we’re getting a definite Ramones/Sex Pistolsy vibe from the visuals.

Billie Joe also linked one of his Insta posts to the official Longshot account, which is currently set to private. But its bio reads: “New album ‘Love is for Losers’ coming eventually sooner or later. Probably sooner.”

It comes after the punk rock ledgehammer issued something of a called to arms for “young rock n rollers” at the end of last year, urging them to “Be brave. Be tough. Spit your anger. Piss people off. Don’t be normal. Don’t be trendy. Be loud. Live out loud. Cuss . Swear. Be offensive. Tell the truth. YOUR truth. Fuck authority. Spray paint the walls with your song titles. Be dirty. Smash glass. Make a statement. Don’t be a wimp. Don’t be a follower. Unhinged.”

“We need more young rebel heroes with loud guitars,” he said.

Maybe he’s trying to follow some of his own advice with this sudden ~awakening~ of The Longshot?

Cop a squiz of BJ’s posts below, as we wait to find out more about this mysterious new musical endeavour….

And ICYMI: Green Day’s much-frothed American Idiot musical is still doing the rounds down under, returning to Brisbane this April before ending its season up in Darwin in May.
