Punk Supergroup Armstrongs Release New Single, Proceeds To Be Donated
The punk supergroup, made up of Billie Joe (Green Day), Tim (Operation Ivy/Rancid/Transplants), Joey (SWMRS), and Rey Armstrong have dropped a brand new track, 'If There Was Ever A Time'. Releasing it via Hellcat Records, the band will donate 100% of the proceeds to 924 Gilman: a DIY, nonprofit, all-ages venue for music, art, and community events in Berkeley, California.
“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!”
The track is a powerful punk anthem of unity, and was recently featured in the documentary Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk.
“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.”
'If There Was Ever a Time' will be available everywhere on July 28. In addition, a run of flexi-disc singles (limited to just 1,000 copies) will be sold via Pirates Press and available for purchase here only.
