Following Good Charlotte’s most recent release “Cardiology” (2010), the group needed to take a breather. “We had grown up inside the band and it was all we knew,” Benji says. “We all needed to step away to find out who we were outside of it as well as do some growing personally.”
In November 2015, the band released a one-off video for the song “Makeshift Love,” a track with all the elements of Good Charlotte's classic sound. Recorded with longtime writer/producer John Feldmann, the song captures the vibe that made GC so revered. They quickly followed it up with a triumphant, sold-out show at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA.
Now, after a run of U.K. shows in February, U.S. dates in April and the release of their new album YOUTH AUTHORITY on MDDN July 15, GOOD CHARLOTTE is ecstatic to get back to their true purpose.
