Billie Joe & Tim Armstrong Form Punk Supergroup The Armstrongs


Armstrongs Tim and Billie Joe, ’90s punk icons both, have a new band together. They’re called The Armstrongs, of course, according to Billboard.com.

The Green Day and Rancid/Operation Ivy frontmen — no relation, by the way — are joined by Billie Joe’s son Joey and Tim’s nephew Rey. They just released a beery, three-chord sing-along of a tune called “If There Was Ever a Time,” with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting 924 Gilman, an East Bay all-ages nonprofit punk venue where both Rancid and Green Day got their starts. The single will get a physical release via Hellcat Records, and is also available for streaming on YouTube.
