Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and several family members and friends today released “If There Was Ever a Time,” a single that will benefit East Bay punk co-op 924 Gilman. The group, under the moniker “Armstrongs,” includes Tim Armstrong (Operation Ivy, Rancid), Joey Armstrong (SWMRS) and Rey Armstrong. The track was released on Hellcat Records.
The song was 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,” Tim Armstrong said in a news release. “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 on July 28. A limited run of 1,000 flexi-disc singles will be sold via Pirates Press.
