It’s been a few months since Good Charlotte dropped the music video for their new album’s lead single, “Actual Pain,” but now, it looks like the band is ready to treat fans to another new tune. On Friday (July 13), the Baltimore-founded band celebrated the beginning of the weekend by unleashing another new song from their forthcoming record. Titled “Shadowboxer,” the new song tackles the issue of mental health and the pesky voices that never leave you alone.
The three-minute music video finds the group performing in what looks to be a depleted and abandoned house with furniture covered in clothes and spider webs everywhere. Between the footage of the band performing, the viewer watches as several people look at their reflections in light and bright room, but as soon as those pesky voices return, they are transported to the abandoned house where dark versions of themselves are reflected in the mirror. Watch the complete music video for “Shadowboxer” above.
“Shadowboxer” will join lead single “Actual Pain” on Good Charlotte’s seventh studio album, Generation RX. Generation RX is due out Sept. 14 through the band’s newly minted partnership with BMG and their record label imprint, MDDN.
In addition to the music video for the new song, the group revealed that they will headline a benefit concert for the victims of last month’s Capital Gazette shooting. While the festival is still in the early stages, the show will take place on Saturday, July 28, in Annapolis, Maryland. As of now, Good Charlotte are the only musical act on the bill.
“I don’t know what we can bring to it, other than we just want to be involved in supporting the city,” Benji Madden said in an interview with the Capital Gazette.
“Obviously, we’re all shocked [from the shooting]. We’re all kind of speechless. These are moments when you really don’t know what to do to help.”
This news comes a couple of days after the band confirmed plans to hit the North American touring circuit during the fall months. The Generation RX North American tour will begin on Oct. 12 at the Open Air ACMX in Mexico City and conclude on Nov. 24 at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.
Generation RX is the follow-up to the band’s first post-hiatus album, 2016’s Youth Authority.
