After hinting at their return late last year, pop-punk band Good Charlotte announced in March that they’ll tour and release an album in 2016. The band released “Makeshift Love,” the first single from the forthcoming Youth Authority, in November — and now they’ve shared another cut from the album, “40 oz. Dream,” and a music video to match.
“For us ‘40 oz. Dream’ was the perfect song to kick off our new album,” Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden told Rolling Stone. “It’s got all the sarcasm and humor we’ve always loved, and lots of affection for the past and present. As a band that formed in 1996, it’s a fun moment to be welcomed back so warmly. We’re very happy to have found our place in 2016.”
Good Charlotte’s most recent album was Cardiology, which they released in late 2010. Youth Authority — which Good Charlotte described as being “for people who love music and are constantly motivated and trying to live a rad life” — is currently slated to drop on July 15.
The band will perform four concerts later this month in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New York, and Boston. In July, they’ll hit the road for a leg of this year’s Warped Tour, playing in cities including Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis.
