ATP! Lists: 10 Reasons We're Excited for a (Possible) New Good Charlotte Album
Emergency, call 911! Good Charlotte released their first new song in nearly five years last week (well, a collaboration with Waka Flocka Flame) and ever since, our hearts have been racing at the idea that a new GC record maybe coming our way sooner rather than later! This is pure speculation at this stage, but with this new track being released combined with cryptic tweets from vocalist Joel Madden hinting that this dream may become a reality.. you could say we had a few reasons to believe the band are potentially plotting a comeback in the not too distant future.
1. It's been nearly FIVE YEARS since Good Charlotte released their last album. That's right. Five long years of withdrawal.
2. A new album = new incredible album artwork designed by guitarist Billy Martin.
3. We will have even more sad songs that we can relate to after those tough days when life doesn't always go the way you wanted it to.
4. A new record will ultimately lead to a world tour, which means we will finally be able hear the songs that defined our teenage years once again!
5. If this news is true, Good Charlotte will have released six albums. SIX! That means you could listen to Good Charlotte for almost an entire day without hearing the same song twice.
6. What is one of the main reasons why we love Good Charlotte so much? They are the kings of writing incredible harmonies and melodies. And, oh boy. It's been far too long.
7. A new album means new music videos. So expect to see more gems like this once again...
8. What are Good Charlotte known for? Writing songs about teenage angst (dare we say 'emo'?) that we love to sing at the top of our lungs when we’re angry, sad or just pissed off with the world. And we're sure, there will be plenty more of where that came from!
9. Style. If there's one thing the band are known (besides the music) is their fashion sense and we can't wait how the band are looking since we last saw them.
10. With each album comes a different musical direction, but yet, they still know how to keep the fans happy with their signature style of music. In a scene that has needed a breath of fresh air for many years, we couldn't be more excited that the kids of today will finally be able to hear how pop-rock (and even "pop-punk") should be done. Correctly.
