Good news Good Charlotte fans, it looks like the band’s much-anticipated new album will be coming our way some time this year. In an interview with Alternative Press, frontman Joel Madden sat down with the publication to speak about everything that has happened within the last couple of months. As anticipated, talks turned to whether the group had a new album in the works which, as most fans figured, they do.
“It feels like the GC of the past, but there’s a new energy to it,” explained Madden. “We made the record with John Feldmann, who we’ve never been able to make a full record with before, so there’s a lot of energy there. It wasn’t a record where we had to think about the radio, so it’s really a record we just want to play live. There’s something really alive about it. It feels really vital.”
Talks of whether the Baltimore band had a new album in the works or already completed began once they released their new single, “Makeshift Love.” The song signaled the end of the group’s five-year hiatus, though it technically ended when they contributed a new song to Adam Sandler’s video game-centric film, Pixels, last summer.
While there was no name or projected released date given for the album, we can all agree that it’s good to know there’s new music on the horizon. Good Charlotte’s last album before decided to go on a break was 2010’s Cardiology. Even with out a new album full of songs, the group will be hitting the road for a short tour at the beginning of February.
Good Charlotte will be joining All Time Low for the European leg of their “Back to the Future Hearts Tour.” The trek will officially kick off on Feb. 10 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff and wrap up on Feb. 16 at Jarena in Dublin.
