Green Day Leader Produces Dead And Gone, Again

Even though Green Day themselves aren't scheduled to go into the studio for a

few months yet, that doesn't mean singer Billy Joe Armstrong has gone cold

turkey.

God Loves Everyone But You is the name of the latest Dead

and Gone album and it was produced by Armstrong and the band this past Oct. The

East Bay stalwarts, part of the Gilman Street scene that launched Green Day,

have a punk pedigree that stretches back to the early days of that scene, with

members who've gone through bands like Special Forces, Jackacid and Blatz.

The new 11-track effort, their first for Jello Biafra's Alternative

Tentacles, contains Black Flag-inspired songs like "Trainwreck," "The Chemist,"

"Violets" and "Vertigo," and marks the second time they're worked with

Armstrong, the first being last year's Prank Records album TV

Baby.
