LOS ANGELES, CA - July 9, 2018 - Good Charlotte today announced a massive North American Tour in support of their anxiously awaited seventh full-length studio album, Generation Rx. The tour will kick off on October 12, 2018 in Mexico City, and wrap on November 24, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. Fan club pre-sale tickets will be available beginning July 10, 2018 at 10:00am local time, and general tickets will be available beginning July 13, 2018 at 10:00am local time HERE. Generation Rx is due for release on September 14, 2018 via a newly minted global partnership between the band's MDDN label and BMG.
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 tour kicking off February 1, 2019. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.

ABOUT GOOD CHARLOTTE:
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  and Cardiology  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.
