GOOD CHARLOTTE release new video for single SELF HELP!
Good Charlotte released a new music video for “Self Help”, the latest single off their recently released album Generation Rx. The video provides a physical metaphor for the song’s tough lyrical themes, following a boxer as he works to better himself and his mind. It’s a glance into the demanding perseverance that it takes to overcome self-doubt, depression, personal frustration, and other mental health issues. The video was filmed onsite at City of Angels Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, CA and Summit Theater in Colorado. Jake Stark, with whom the band previously worked with on their impactful music videos for singles “Prayers” and “Shadowboxer”, directed the piece. Watch it now HERE.
Good Charlotte released their acclaimed new album Generation Rx on September 14th, 2018 via MDDN/BMG. The album represents both a new chapter and full circle moment for the group-brothers Joel [vocals] and Benji Madden [guitar, vocals], Billy Martin [guitar], Paul Thomas [bass], and Dean Butterworth [drums]. Powered by punk spirit, rock songcraft, and cinematic ambition, they retain the signature vitality and vulnerability of their formative years, while delivering an urgent, unafraid, and undeniable message befitting of two decades in the game.
The band is currently on tour in celebration of the record, and will be performing in major cities across the United States and Canada through the end of November. Good Charlotte will return to the road in Europe and The UK for a tour kicking off February 1, 2019.
ABOUT GOOD CHARLOTTE:
First formed in 1996 by brothers Joel and Benji Madden, Maryland’s GOOD CHARLOTTE soundtracked the turn-of-the-century and empowered a generation with one cleverly catchy anthem after another. 2000’s landmark self-titled debut earned a gold plaque and quietly set the stage for worldwide superstardom. In 2002, they unleashed the now-classic The Young and the Hopeless, which eventually went RIAA triple-platinum and would be lauded in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s “50 Greatest Pop-Punk Albums” and BuzzFeed’s “36 Pop Punk Albums You Need to Hear Before You F–ing Die.” 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and reached platinum status as Good Morning Revival  and Cardiology  repeated that Top 10 success and brought the band around the world multiple times in front of countless screaming fans. Along the way, everyone from N.E.R.D. and Three 6 Mafia to Avenged Sevenfold and Tonight Alive jumped at the chance to collaborate. By 2018, cumulative sales exceeded 11 million worldwide, while accolades encompassed everything from KERRANG! Awards to an MTV VMA. Following a six-year hiatus, they made a much-lauded return with their first independent offering Youth Authority during 2016. However, their music and message prove as potent as ever on 2018’s Generation Rx-the first album to be released under their partnership with BMG. Generation Rx needed a voice, and there’s no one better to provide it than GOOD CHARLOTTE.
