Tim Armstrong from Rancid and Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day have got together to form the group ARMSTRONGS. They are not related but the band did release a new track, ‘If There Was Ever A Time.’ Rounding out the group is Billie Joe’s son from SWMRS Joey Armstrong and Tim’s nephew Rey Armstrong.
“Anything that has to do with working with Gilman and Tim and Joey Armstrong, consider me in,” says Billie Joe. “This is about our home and family. Viva Armstrong!”
“It was exciting to work on this song with Billie and crew for the film,” says Tim. “Stoked to share the tune with everyone out there and to be donating all the proceeds to Gilman, which is a place so near, dear, and important to us.”
Releasing the track via Hellcat Records, Armstrongs will donate 100 percent of proceeds to 924 Gilman: a DIY, nonprofit, all-ages venue for music, art, and community events in Berkeley, California.
In addition, a run of flexi-disc singles (limited to just 1,000 copies) are available now via Pirates Press.
