Good Charlotte just wants to live!

Following a six-year hiatus, the band announced on Monday (March 14) that they are making music once again. Fans should expect the untitled LP to be released this summer. 

Good Charlotte Is Back: Hear a Song Tease

The band released this statement

“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. 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.”

The band, led by brothers Joel and Benji Madden, will be touring along the East Coast prior to the album's release. The mini-tour will kick off in Philadelphia. Tickets for the tour go on sale on March 18.
