Good Charlotte’s new album is officially heading our way this summer. After many months of quiet and then some teasing, the Maryland based band has confirmed the release of their much anticipated new album. On Wednesday (March 30), the newly reunited band took to social media to post a 15 second clip. In the same post, they advise fans that a longer video was available on Apple Music.
The full two-minute clip takes place in a dark room with a domino effect obstacle course set up. It begins with a set of dominoes and CDs being knocked over, triggering a marble to make its journey across the room. As the marble goes through the obstacle course, the viewer gets to see short clips from the band’s past. Clips include an appearance on “TRL,” an interview with the band about how the roles in the group were chosen, and footage of them winning the “Viewer’s Choice” at the “2003 MTV Video Music Awards” for “The Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous.”
As the clip wraps, the screen turns dark with the information fans have been waiting months for; the release date for the band’s new album. Good Charlotte’s sixth studio album, which is still untitled, is set to be released on July 15. The release of the new album will coincide with the beginning of the band’s turn on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour which will begin on July 19.
Earlier this month, it was announced that the new record will feature several guests including Sleeping with Sirens’ Kellin Quinn and Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil. Back in November of 2015, the band released the lead single from the record, “Makeshift Love,” though at the time it was just speculation that a new album would be in the future for them. The still-untitled record will be the follow-up to 2010’s Cardiology; the band’s last album before beginning their five-year hiatus.
