In December, 2007, the members of Green Day, along with Prima Donna singer and guitarist Kevin Preston, created a MySpace page and website for a band called Foxboro Hot Tubs. Over the next few months, rumors ran rampant that the group was, indeed, an alias for Green Day (the fact that the original songs available on the band's website and MySpace page clearly featured Armstrong on vocals were something of a tip-off). By April 2008, Armstrong confirmed as much in an email to MTV: "The only similarity," between Foxboro Hot Tubs and Green Day, he wrote, "is that we are the same band."
