The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed Good Charlotte dropped a new track at midnight – and now we’ve loads more news.
The band’s seventh studio album, ‘Generation RX’ will be released on 14th September followed by a big old European tour that kicks off early next year. The run will include just one stop in the UK, at London’s Alexandra Palace on 20th February. They’re also playing Slam Dunk this weekend, mind.
“At the beginning of the year, we were reflecting a lot,” say Joel and Benji. “We just played a memorial service in honor of Lil Peep. We were thinking of that. Our generation was the first to have so many ways to deal with pain. Throughout this century, we’ve seen the whole opioid crisis get worse. We wondered if we were really doing our part.
“We wanted to bet back out there on the battlefield and spread insight, share experience, and give anything we could to improve lives. The message is you can get through the pain, survive it, and have the life you want. We made the record on our own terms and our own time. In that respect, we channeled the soul of our first two albums. This is the album we’ve been waiting 15 years to create.”
