The Longshot Become Sure-Fire Thing With Surprise Album Release, ‘Love Is for Losers’ Video
Where Green Day wear their punk influence proudly, The Longshot seems more of a straight-up, pop-inspired rock outfit with even a little classic rock and country flavoring working its way in on certain tracks. The band's entire 11-song debut disc can be heard streaming at Spotify.
Armstrong is joined in the band by Prima Donna band members Kevin Preston and David S. Field, as well Green Day's touring guitarist Jeff Matika. Prima Donna have had a close association with Green Day over the years, and Preston had previously played in another Green Day offshoot, Foxboro Hot Tubs.
Their first single, "Love Is for Losers," can be heard in the performance-based clip above.
