More on the Longshot

Last year, the band surprise dropped not one, not two, but THREE EPs.

The EPs followed the release of the band’s debut album, Love Is For Losers, on Friday, April 20, 2018.

“Hey! I just put up 3 eps on SoundCloud!” Billie Joe Armstrong shared on the Longshot’s Instagram. “Originals, some covers I did in my garage and a couple songs from these paper bullets! Rock out and freak out!”
