As promised, Good Charlotte has released their full official music video for "Makeshift Love," the band's first new song in nearly five years.
The early 2000's pop-punk group, fronted by Benji and Joel Madden, leaked a teaser to the video earlier this week, showing the two brothers, as well as the rest of the band, wearing business-casual attire like grown, working adults. What wasn't clear was that the reason for this was that they are working on a "breakup app" in the video called BRK APP with the slogan "just send a text to make an ex!" The video also features cameos by Mikey Way and John Feldmann.
As previously mentioned, the new song serves as the band's first new material since 2010's Cardiology, with the two brothers releasing some softer, mainstream pop music under their solo project, The Madden Brothers, in the interim.
The band had been rolling out hints of their comeback, including the new song and video, for the past couple of weeks. They even more recently announced that they will be joining All Time Low on tour in the UK. The new song had been teased on social media with a brief 30-second clip showing people texting the lyrics to the song whose name hadn't been revealed at that point.
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, especially with as firm of a campaign as #WelcomeBackGC suggests. More details are sure to follow. The band has been posting regular updates to their newly revamped official website.
