On May 24th, Good Charlotte published a new lead single, "Actual Pain" from their seventh studio album titled, 'Generation RX' officially out September 14th, 2018 via a minted partnership between MDDN label andBMG.
For streaming and downloading of this new single: Here. Tour dates listed below!
If you're listening to "Actual Pain" for the first time, spoiler: there's no mistake of a new sound, and that would include electro-pop. I can't help but to say this melody reminds me of "St. Patrick" by PVRIS (which, rocks!). For more recommendations on this single, scan the Good Charlotte YouTube comments below:
‘Actual Pain’ mainly focuses on the darkness that is within us all. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine here, Joel and Benji state, “Throughout this century we’ve seen the whole opioid crisis get worse. We wondered if we were really doing our part. We wanted to get back out there on the battlefield and spread insight, share experience and give anything we could to improve lives.” In addition, Joel and Benji Madden state, “Good Charlotte was at our best when we were unconscious and naive kids, who didn’t know it wasn’t cool to try hard or make new friends. There was an honesty and vulnerability we were able to share with the world back then, that makes us extremely proud of the young guys that we were. The wisdom that time gives you also comes with baggage and we’ve been searching for the door back in to that vulnerability, honesty and hopeful outlook that seems to only exist in innocence for a good 15 years. Generation Rx feels to us like we finally found our way back to that place.”
Since there's so much buzz; let's throwback to one of Good Charlotte's globally recognized single: "The Anthem" (2002) from the album, 'The Young and the Hopeless.' Un-arguably the genre is expressed as pop-punk. Yet, as fans wrote above, art is constantly changing, and that's what keeps us all intrigued!
