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
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
