On the eve of the first Good Charlotte UK tour in five years, the band have announced they have signed to a new label.
Kobalt Label Services, which includes artists such as Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Pet Shop Boys on its roster, have signed an agreement ‘effective immediately’ with the band – which will include the upcoming and as yet untitled sixth Good Charlotte album.
Previous GC albums have been released on labels Epic and Capitol.
In the press release, Benji and Joel say the sixth album will be ‘the best music we’ve ever made’.
KLS describes itself as providing the ‘next generation of services’ for artists – and says it allows acts to maintain ownership of their masters.
The current Good Charlotte UK tour starts in Cardiff tonight.
