Meet the Dublin lo-fi punkers making a proper din.
Good Charlotte will be joined by Florida rockers Sleeping With Sirens and homegrown melodic punks Boston Manor when they arrive at London’s Alexandra Palace in February 2019.
The band, who released their new album Generation RX on the 14 September 2018, will be joined by both bands for their full European tour, which arrives in London on the 20 February.
The album sees Joel and Benji Madden, Billy Martin, Paul Thomas and Dean Butterworth combine their ever-evolving sound with poignant commentary built across their two decades as a band.
Returning to their roots, the album was produced during intimate recordings at MDDN headquarters.
“At the beginning of the year, we were reflecting a lot,” says Joel and Benji. “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.”

Generation RX is the first Good Charlotte album since their 2016 comeback Youth Authority.
The band have celebrated critical success with the likes of 2002 album The Young And The Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life And Death.
They’ll be bringing music new and old to UK shores for a very special appearance at London’s Alexandra Palace on 20 February 2019, joined by Sleeping With Sirens and Boston Manor.
