Billie Joe Armstrong is restless. Or so it seems given the flurry of new projects from the Green Day front man in recent months. Earlier this year, we saw the singer along with some of his Green Day bandmates play a string of dates as a cover band called The Coverups. Now comes a new original band, The Longshot, comprising Billie Joe, guitarist Kevin Preston, drummer David S. Field, and Green Day touring guitarist Jeff Matika on bass. The group has already released a three-track EP and a full-length record called Love Is for Losers. We caught up with The Coverups at The Ivy Room in Albany, California before they depart for a tour of small clubs. Check out the photos below.
