Good Charlotte have confirmed the release date for album six.
The as-yet untitled album will be released on July 15 2016.
The release date was announced in a video on Apple Music. It was at the end of the video screened before GC took to the stage on their UK dates earlier this year.
So does this mean it’ll be an AppleMusic exclusive first? It’s worth noting that Apple Music are currently offering the first three months for free, if (like me!) you plan on buying the physical copy!
Good Charlotte’s upcoming sixth album will include a track which is a collaboration with the frontman of Scottish group Biffy Clyro, Joel has revealed.
Speaking to a radio station in Philadelphia, Joel confirmed that vocalist and guitarist Simon Neil has worked on a track with GC for new release. Another track features Kellin Quinn from Sleeping with Sirens.
Joel said doing a song with Neil was “incredible” and added that he’s always been a fan of the Scottish trio.
But these aren’t the only guest stars on the record – Joel’s son Sparrow also features on one song.
“The first song on the record is called ‘Life Changes’. I actually got my son, who’s six years old, to do some stuff on it so that song’s obviously pretty special to me,” Joel added.
Good Charlotte are to release a new single on April 4 ahead of a mini-US tour and the album release this summer.
Good Charlotte have released pre-order packages for their as-yet untitled sixth album and revealed the release date for their next single.
Pre-order packages including t-shirts and the record on vinyl are now on sale in Good Charlotte’s official store. Shipping costs to the UK range from $14.70 (£10.38) for delivery 8-24 business days after the release to $61.83 (£43.66) for delivery 4-5 business dates after the release.
Their single will be released on April 4, according to Entertainment Weekly, ahead of the release of the album this summer.
It comes as the band announce a short run of US tour dates playing in Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York and Boston. Those pre-ordering the album can get priority access to tickets for the US dates.
The last new Good Charlotte song was Makeshift Love, released in November. They teased new music last week by tweeting a clip of the video they showed on their UK tour last month.
On their UK dates earlier this year, Good Charlotte said they’ll be back in the UK later this year.
