California alt-rockers The Longshot (fronted by Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong) have surprised fans today by unexpectedly unleashing their debut album, Love Is For Losers. The guys also dropped the official video for the LP’s title-track — stream it below.
In addition, The Longshot are playing a record release show tonight at the Ivy Room in Albany, CA, which they’ll follow with gigs in Costa Mesa and Hollywood.
Starting next month, the band will set out on a full-blown tour of North America (ft. Frankie and the Studs + The Trash Bags) with three shows booked in New York: Manhattan’s Coney Island Baby on May 22 & 23 [TIX go on sale on 4/27], and Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on June 1 [TIX go on sale on 4/27].
