Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s new band The Longshot have surprise-released their debut album, Love Is For Losers, along with a music video for the title track. Armstrong began teasing the new act earlier this month by sharing a series of Instagram posts with his 1.8 million followers. The posts pointed to the act's private Instagram page, which stated that its debut album was “coming eventually sooner or later. Probably sooner.”

After sharing three songs on April 13th and then hitting the stage with the band that same weekend, now Armstrong has revealed the entire 11-song album.

Armstrong has played with several side projects over the years, including Pinhead GunpowderFoxboro Hot Tubs and The Network. The latter two essentially consisted of all the members of Green Day plus additional musicians.

Armstrong also recorded a collaborative album with Norah Jones in 2013 called Foreverly.

The Longshot features Green Day touring guitarist Jeff Matika on bass and vocals, alongside Foxboro Hot Tubs contributor Kevin Preston on guitar and David S. Field on drums.

Green Day has been on a break since completing the tour cycle for its 2016 album Revolution Radio. The band has reportedly been working on the film version of its 2004 punk opera American Idiot, which is being produced by HBO.
