He plays “troubled boyfriend” Dennis in the independent production, written and directed by actor Frank Whaley and also starring Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Debra Messing (Will & Grace).

Armstrong also appears in upcoming film Geezer, playing 40-year-old Perry, who goes through a mid-life crisis when he meets his former bandmates and an ex-girlfriend at a party.

Green Day will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
