Great news for Good Charlotte fans on the East Coast!
Good Charlotte is set to play four shows in Philadelphia, their hometown of DC, New York, and Boston in mid-April. The rebellious pop-punk band turned pop sensations first announced that they would be getting back together with the 2015 release of “Makeshift Love”, a song whose music video saw the tatted East Coast boys in corporate outfits for what may have been the first (and last) time ever. The video features a chameo from Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance and follows the reformed band trying to sell a dating app with the slogan, “just send a text to make an ex”.

Since Good Charlotte released their most recent album to date, 2010’s Cardiology, twins Benji and Joel Madden have remained in the limelight, serving as judges on The Voice Australia and putting out new music under the moniker, The Madden Brothers. In February, Good Charlotte played their first handful of shows in the UK, performing in support of All Time Low. The new batch of dates will mark Good Charlotte’s first time playing North America in half a decade.

In addition to playing select dates, Good Charlotte is also working on a new record. In an official statement from the band, Good Charlotte stated: “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.”
