It's been six years since Good Charlotte unleashed a new album on the world, and now they are looking to make up for lost time. On Monday (March 14), the five-piece pop-punk band announced that it will be releasing a new record this summer.
Full details surrounding the album remain scarce. However, in a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Good Charlotte released that their new record is on its way soon.
"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," the band said.
News of a new Good Charlotte album should not come as a major surprise to fans who still closely follow the rockers. Last year, they initially teased a comeback with the release of a new single "Makeshift Love."
In anticipation of the new release, Good Charlotte also announced a short tour for April. The dates will stick entirely to the East Coast, with shows in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York and Boston over the course of one week.

Best known for its early 2000s output, including singles "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," "The Anthem' and "I Just Wanna Live," Good Charlotte has not released an album in over half a decade. Its last LP, Cardiology, was released in October 2010.
