LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 30, 2018 - Good Charlotte today shared a new music video for "Actual Pain", the first single off their highly anticipated seventh full-length studio album Generation Rx. Directed by Jake Stark, the introspective clip examines the album's prevailing lyrical themes of trauma, pain, and loneliness. Watch it Generation Rx is due for release on September 14, 2018 via a newly minted global partnership between the band's MDDN label and BMG. "Actual Pain" is available to stream and download now here:

Generation Rx represents both a new chapter and full circle moment for the group-brothers Joel [vocals] and Benji Madden [guitar, vocals], Billy Martin [guitar], Paul Thomas [bass], and Dean Butterworth [drums]. Powered by punk spirit, rock songcraft, and cinematic ambition, they retain the signature vitality and vulnerability of their formative years, while delivering an urgent, unafraid, and undeniable message befitting of two decades in the game.

The quintet craft intricate, yet infectious anthems of hope for a generation under the shadow of the Opioid epidemic, icons gone too soon, mass tragedy, loneliness, and confusion. Produced by Zakk Cervini and Benji during intimate sessions at MDDN headquarters, the record finds Good Charlotte doing what they do best-speaking directly to the youth.

Good Charlotte will return to the road in Europe and The UK for a massive tour kicking off February 1, 2019. Prior to their February tour, Good Charlotte will appear at a number of festivals this summer. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found here:

First formed in 1996 by brothers Joel and Benji Madden, Maryland's GOOD CHARLOTTE soundtracked the turn-of-the-century and empowered a generation with one cleverly catchy anthem after another. 2000's landmark self-titled debut earned a gold plaque and quietly set the stage for worldwide superstardom. In 2002, they unleashed the now-classic The Young and the Hopeless, which eventually went RIAA triple-platinum and would be lauded in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone's "50 Greatest Pop-Punk Albums" and BuzzFeed's "36 Pop Punk Albums You Need to Hear Before You F--ing Die." 2004's The Chronicles of Life and Death bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and reached platinum status as Good Morning Revival [2007] and Cardiology [2010] repeated that Top 10 success and brought the band around the world multiple times in front of countless screaming fans. Along the way, everyone from N.E.R.D. and Three 6 Mafia to Avenged Sevenfold and Tonight Alive jumped at the chance to collaborate. By 2018, cumulative sales exceeded 11 million worldwide, while accolades encompassed everything from KERRANG! Awards to an MTV VMA. Following a six-year hiatus, they made a much-lauded return with their first independent offering Youth Authority during 2016. However, their music and message prove as potent as ever on 2018's Generation Rx-the first album to be released under their partnership with BMG. Generation Rx needed a voice, and there's no one better to provide it than GOOD CHARLOTTE.
