Good Charlotte announce huge UK show and share new single ‘Actual Pain’

The pop punk legends are back

Good Charlotte have announced a huge UK show and shared the first single from their forthcoming new album.

The new album ‘Generation Rx’ is set to be released on September 14 and the band say their new material is inspired by pain and grief.

“At the beginning of the year, we were reflecting a lot,” they said in a statement. “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.” Listen to ‘Actual Pain’ below.

In support of the new album, Good Charlotte have also announced a show at London’s Alexandra Palace on February 20, 2019.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on June 1 and you can buy them here. The band are playing this weekend’s Slam Dunk Festival, along with Jimmy Eat World and Taking Back Sunday.
