After what has felt like years of waiting, Good Charlotte has finally confirmed that they will have a new album soon. On Monday (March 14), the Maryland-based band confirmed that their new album, the follow-up to 2010’s Cardiology, will be heading our way some time this summer. In a statement, they reveal that the new album will be like all the previous albums and that it is dedicated to those who love music and try “to live a rad life” no matter as well as those who motivate and unite others.
“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.”
In addition to the confirmation of the new album, Good Charlotte has also announced a mini East Coast tour for April. The tour will kick off on April 18 at TLA in Philadelphia and will wrap up a couple of days later on April 22 at Paradise Rock Club in Boston. “We started our journey in these clubs and expect to see a ton of friends at these special shows,” the band said in a release. “It’s always been about songwriting and reaching people who love music like we do. We now get to do things the way we always wanted and we’ll play all of our favorites and our newest songs that GC lovers will be stoked on.”
Tickets for each of the shows go on sale beginning this Friday, March 18 while the four tour stops can be seen below. Earlier this year, they joined fellow Maryland boys, all Time Low on the European leg of their “Back to the Future Hearts” tour.
