One Armstrong plus another Armstrong makes The Armstrongs.
Yes, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Tim Armstrong of Rancid have come together to form a new band.
Billie’s son Joey and Tim’s nephew Rey are also part of The Armstrongs, making it a family affair. The band released a new song called “If There Was Ever a Time” and it’s all for a good cause.
The proceeds from the single will be donated to 924 Gilman, an all-ages non-profit punk venue that helped both Rancid and Green Day get started.
“Anything that has to do with working with Gilman and Tim and Joey Armstrong, consider me in. This is about our home and family. Viva Armstrong!” Billie said in a press release for the single.
“It was exciting to work on this song with Billie and crew for the film. 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,” Tim echoed his statements.
