Good Charlotte fans everywhere rejoiced this past Tuesday morning with the news that the iconic pop punk band were making a comeback. Now, the band has released a brand new single titled "Makeshift Love," and announced a one-off Los Angeles comeback concert.
The new song serves as the band's first new material since 2010's Cardiology, with brothers Benji and Joel Madden releasing some softer, mainstream pop music as a side project under moniker The Madden Brothers.
The song, which dropped at 12:30PM EST today via iTunes, and is available for listening via Apple Music, is the one that we already heard a snippet from on Tuesday (November 3) in the #WelcomeBackGC campaign. It will be available for purchase until Saturday, Nov. 7 according to Alternative Press.
According to a video announcement from the band, their first show since relaunching will take place at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday, November 19 with support from Waterparks. Tickets will be available starting November 6 at 10:00 p.m. PST. In the video announcement, the brothers mention that there's also a music video coming, so be on the lookout.
The song's vibe is very reminiscent of their classic 2002 album The Young and The Hopeless, which you'll certainly remember from lead single "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous." It serves as proof that the band can always come back to their roots, regardless of their side endeavors, like writing music for 5 Seconds of Summer or even more recently, releasing a hip-hop song with Waka Flocka Flame.
Although there hasn't been any type of official announcement as of yet in regards to a new album being released in the near future, we can only assume that these new advances are the start of a brand new record campaign. More details are sure to follow. The band has been posting regular updates to their newly revamped official website.
