Good Charlotte announce new album, tour after 6-year break

Good Charlotte are making a return with a new album out this summer, the band announced Monday. This marks their first album since releasing Cardiology, which featured singles “Like It’s Her Birthday” and “Last Night,” in 2010.

“The new album is like our previous albums in that it’s for people who love music and are constantly motivated and trying to live a rad life,” Good Charlotte said in a statement. “Everyone has something to prove to themselves, waking up every day and deciding to change their life for the better and help others do the same. GC has always been about doing this together, motivating each other, finding the unity and energy that exists in taking life’s challenges and coming out on the other side. It’s about being inspired and excited to be both who you are and who you want to be.”

Good Charlotte, led by twins Joel and Benji Madden, first debuted with their self-titled in 2000 before their 2002 breakthrough, The Young and the Hopeless. That record included tracks “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” “The Anthem,” and “Girls & Boys.”

The band most recently teased new music this past November, and released a music video for new single “Makeshift Love” later that month. They’ll embark on a short East Coast tour ahead of releasing their latest and sixth album on a yet-to-be-announced date this summer, and will release the album’s first single April 4. See the list of dates below.
