Between their upcoming album Father of All… and the Hella Mega tour, one would assume Green Day’s schedule would be packed as humanly possible, but the trio has always been far more than human.

In January 2018, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt were joined by touring guitarist Jason White, tour manager Bill Schneider and audio engineer Chris Dugan as they performed a secret show in Albany, CA at the Ivy Room under the name the Coverups.

The Coverups announced their return today with a show Dec. 6 at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa. Joining them are the Interrupters, One Less Zero, Dead Mermaids and Dead Sound.

Green Day drummer Tré Cool commented, “Holy shit! I can’t wait!” insinuating his possible first appearance behind the kit for the Coverups.

The Coverups recently played a special show at Oakland, California’s annual 40th Street Block Party in July. They performed covers from classic punk and rock bands including the MisfitsRamonesthe ClashNirvanaDavid Bowie and more. Check out a video below.
