After days of teasing something on social media, the band has finally unveiled that it is a new album and single. Good Charlotte just released the first single “Actual Pain,” off of their forthcoming seventh studio album, Generation RX. This new album will be the followup album to their 2016 release of Youth Authority, and the first record to be released under the globally partnered MDDN Co label and BMG.

The new album is produced by Zakk Cervini and guitarist/vocalist Benji Madden during some very intimate sessions at their MDDN Co headquarters in LA. The new single and album will speak directly to the youth of today and showcase the struggles everyone have seen recently with the opioid crisis. The album art for the new album can be seen below and you can also hear their new single “Acutal Pain” below.

The Madden Brothers (Benji & Joel) said, “At the beginning of the year, we were reflecting a lot, We just played a memorial service in honor of Lil Peep. We were thinking of that. Our generation was the first to have so many ways to deal with pain. Throughout this century, we’ve seen the whole opioid crisis get worse. We wondered if we were really doing our part. We wanted to bet back out there on the battlefield and spread insight, share experience, and give anything we could to improve lives. The message is you can get through the pain, survive it, and have the life you want. We made the record on our own terms and our own time. In that respect, we channeled the soul of our first two albums. This is the album we’ve been waiting 15 years to create.”
