“Love Is For Losers,” is an even-tempo rock ballad, “Taxi Driver” is a fun upbeat tune and “Chasing A Ghost” is a retro-style rock and roll song with big drums and catchy hooks. Other members of the band have not been announced but there is a possibility that the drummer could be Joey Armstrong, Billie Joe’s son.
